Day 3: Plumbing work begins

The bathroom remodeling project is moving ahead with all deliberate speed. In the past two day, the carpenter Jim hauled away three trailers worth of debris from the demolition of our main bathroom. I think that there is dust everywhere in our house, but is often said, you gotta break some eggs to make an omelet. Today was the first day of plumbing work. Lance, who works for Grandville Plumbing, is doing the work. As some of you know, one of Deirdre's greatest fear is any sort of plumbing problem. Well, the pipes in this house had some unique work done on them in the past, as Lance pointed out to me. He is going to replace some galvanized pipe (which is cheaper than copper) and use plastic returns lines, so hopefully once he is done with plumbing in the sinks, shower and toilet we will have many, many years of trouble free plumbing in the new bathroom.

I am comfortable doing electrical work. I understand Ohm's Law and how the electrons travel from the power company into my main electrical box and are further distributed to the outlets and light switches in our home. I am nowhere near as comfortable with plumbing work. I would much rather pay a professional to do the job right the first time and not have to worry about a pipe leaking or a drain line not draining. Lance has been nothing but business as he works to plumb in a the supply and return lines for the bathroom. This project is really starting to take shape, now that the demolition is done. Updates to follow!

They sure are moving along at break neck speed. When is the anticipated completion date? Seems like they should be on target and the bathing can re-commence!

For the record, bathing has never stopped here East of the Equator. BR NR2 is still fully functional!
