Pensacola Spotlight: Seafood Festival

Pensacola is packed full of exciting upcoming activities this fall. The 45th Annual Seafood Festival helped to kickstart the fall festivities!

The Seafood Festival ran from Friday through Sunday and provided the Pensacola locals and visitors with a variety of eats and treats. The Festival was held in Seville Square in Downtown Pensacola. The largest draw for the festival was indeed the seafood offered by local Gulf to Table vendors, including some of the local favorites The Fishing Hole and Ahepa Greek Fare. The Fisherman’s Corner booth offered a delicious andouille encrusted flounder with creole sauce, which is basically a food dish one dreams of!

Mark your calendars for this event next year, it is not one to miss!

A fresh coat of paint was applied to the exterior and siding was added around the windows that were placed where the garage doors. 

Another window was added in the kitchen, which helps to brighten up the space indoors and provides views of the beautiful trees and flowering bushes in the yard around the unit.

No Need to Sweat!

Gulf State Heating & Air did a wonderful job on installing the new HVAC system at Spring Street. An HVAC system has never been placed at the property, this was a huge undertaking for the crew that did the installation.

The project started underneath the house, by cutting space in the floor for vents and continued with the placement of duct work connecting the heating/cooling system to the floor vents. A straight cool split system was placed with each individual cooling unit installed for each all four units on both levels of the home. This helps optimize efficiency and lower the need for service calls in the future. Installing a straight cool split system was a suggestion by the professionals at Gulf State Heating & Air, it came highly recommended for units that will be occupied by renters, whether it be short or long term.

The HVAC crew suspended the air handlers for the first floor to the floor joyces under the home securing the handlers with metal strapping. The smaller downstairs unit, #2, now has a half ton heating and cooling system in place and the larger unit, #1, has a 2 ton package heating and air system in place. 

Heading upstairs, you will find the heating/cooling units placed in the attic along with freshly ran duct work and newly placed vents and returns for the systems. The crew placed the heating/cooling unit for Unit 3 and 4 above the units in the attic because of the close proximity, which allows for sufficient heat and air flow. 

Big thanks to Gulf State Heating & Air for their hard work to ensure our guests will be cool before the Florida summer heat picks up.

Let's Get Wired!

Kipling Street's garage to studio renovation recently underwent a complete electrical installation. This process started with the placement of the breaker box. Then outlet boxes were strategically placed throughout the unit, to provide optimal accessibility to light switches and outlets for the future tenants. Once the outlet boxes were placed, the correct wires were run from the breaker box to the outlet boxes. 

Our contractor, Dallas Goodale, found a reputable local company, Don Wheelis Electrical Contractors to take on the complete eletcrical installation. Marshall Wheelis, Don's son, oversaw the process from planning to pulling permits to completion. Don Wheelis Electrical Contractors has been an established business in Pensacola for close to 20 years, Marshall has accompanied his Dad on job sites nearly the entire time the business has been in place, which provided him with hands on knowledge and experience. This particular project at Kipling took 2 days from start to finish. Marshall said, "We can complete a rewire project on a home in 1-7 days, depending on the square footage."

Word of wisdom that Marshall provided was to make sure you pull your permits from the city and the county before beginning your project. It will ensure a quicker inspection if the permits are secured prior to starting the project.
