I don’t know the real reason behind it, but it seems like living in the northern section of the country where it gets cold and snowy gets a bad reputation in the world. Don’t get me wrong, I get why some people are not big fans of living and working where the weather is below fifty degrees for two thirds of the year. With that being said, I have always thought that there are more perks than people think when you are living up north. One of the things that most southerners will never get to experience the joy of coming home after a day full of playing outside in the snow and coming home to warm up in the house. My parents had radiant flooring installed in their house when I was a kid, and whenever my friends and I would get back home it was always a treat. With the radiant flooring not only were we able to warm up and dry off our clothes while we ate lunch, but we were able to all lay down on the floor and take a nap after the long day while soaking up the warmth. Now that I am an adult, one of the main things that I wanted when looking for my first home was simple. Plenty of space outdoors, and radiant flooring installed. Thanks to hard work and persistence I was able to find a house that fit this exact description, and I must say that I don’t think life could get any better for me. I am able to go snowboard with my friends and come home to a warm and comfortable house. I don’t know about you, but this sounds much better than melting to death each afternoon like those who live in the south!
