I took the Hunter Original Fan out of our old house and installed it in the Radio Room. A bit of a chore as it is heavy, mounts differently than normal fans and there was no box in the ceiling.
First to find the center of the room:
Next to make the hole. The original builder decided to put a wall scone in instead of a ceiling light. Later that was removed and the box was plastered over. But that’s another story.
Then a metal pancake box screwed to the joist. BTW, I found the layout mark on the joist for where the ceiling light was originally planned to be located. Notice the u-bolt fan mount. It is lag screwed into the joist. I had to drill through the electrical box for the lag screws.
After all, who can work if it is below 90°F?
Anyhow, half our backyard is behind our privacy fence. Why, I don’t know, one of the previous owners was too cheap? Anyhow, the way it was, we had to go all the way around the house to get to the other part of the backyard.

And the final product
And yep, nothing is straight on this project. I am just happy the fence did not collapse given its poor construction and age.
Well, today just before 7 PM, our door bell rang twice. Before we could get to the door, whomever rang it was gone. Typical prank? Wait, a new twist. 1/2 of a Little Caesar’s sausage pizza. It smelled good but as Marisa put it maybe it has Roundup in it since we are the only ones on our new block not to spray.
