Kids Bath: Plumbing

What you see in the photo above are the old cast iron pipes from the drain and the main stack, as well as galvanized steel for sink drain, and copper that was water supply. All of those are being replaced, and you can see in the photo bellow the new PVC main stack.

One interesting thing a plumber asked us was if we ever had an issue with pipes freezing in winter. We haven't. Apparently, we were very lucky. The copper supply pipes were in the outside wall, and there was no insulation. We are now making sure that EVERYTHING is insulated. Including the interior walls between the rooms. Just in case.

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?






The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
