P is for PLUMBER

Howdy Folks!

We are still here…Nothing fun happening on the home front lately…We are still doing some UN FUN home improvements. Total suckage!

Between electric last Spring, windows last Fall and now plumbing, we have had NO FUN with this house. None the less, it all has to get done.

6a012875d8dd21970c0133f2198b4c970b-800wiWe knew we had plumbing issues prior to move in and its taken us 2 and a half years to find a good plumber and save the funds to do it.

Speaking of plumbers, we have had a VERY hard time with them. We are on our 5th one! I don’t get it. We belong to www.angieslist.com , we network, we read reviews, and still. They would come out. And we would have to hound them for weeks to get our quotes.

The last two came in very highly rated and then their quotes were off by about 2k! That’s a heck of a difference!

Anyway, it finally starts Monday. They are replacing ALL of our cast iron pipes with PVC. They are corroded and leaking all over our basement. And for some reason, they aren’t laying right either. So they are ripping them all out. I am very excited.

I have not been able to finish the basement properly because of those dang pipes. We also have a master shower we have NEVER used here because of these pipes and leaks. So this is definitely the first step of many in getting to the FUN renovations…I hope to do the master bath this winter…Maybe the basement..

And in the spring we hope to get a driveway put in.

Sooo many projects…So little time (AND MONEY!)
