Building a home is a daunting task for the average American, as many people wouldn't even know where to begin in the process. However, one Aroostook County, Maine resident decided to take his chances and constructed his own residence.
According to the Bangor Daily News, though Niklas Roble was uncertain of the success he would have with the project, he immediately began to see results and this only pushed him harder.
After only a year of work, Roble can proudly stand by his residence and marvel at what he was able to accomplish in such a short period of time.
"There’s not a thing you can look at that I didn’t do," he told the news outlet.
Though he was initially looking to complete a basic structure, which would include the bare essentials and limited appliances, Roble decided to go all out and install a number of new technologies into his hand-built residence.
He was able to install a radiant heating system into his residence, after laboriously tending to his flooring and carving out a place for the product. However, as he noted, the results were worth the work.
"I write one check a month," he said of the electric bill for the system.
While the technology is perfect for every American home, many people are unable to install a radiant heating system on their own. This is where companies like Warmboard, which offers a unique and highly efficient product, help with the installation process and help to explain exactly the best way to use the system.
Warmboard radiant heating systems can be installed by licensed professionals who can help to set up the zoning mechanism, further saving people money and increasing the comfort level within a residence.
