What a long day, 8-5:30, but we did it!!! I am so ready for bed and I know Todd will be too. He had an hour’s drive before getting home to a hot shower. He took a cold mntn. dew for the ride home. There was most definitely a leak in the pipe under the house, doing that work took almost 2 hours. Todd did a fantastic job and we were so glad when we turned on the water and there were no leaks anywhere. He did work with copper/soldering and pvc. I put a fan under the house to blow on him, from the tight entry way in the kitchen’s screened porch. The fan is an old GE, heavy motor and casing and probably weights at least 10 lbs. he said 25. I stayed at the opening in case he needed anything, and for morale support. I prayed that he would be safe and that it would all go smoothly.
We didn’t quite get the shower plumbing finished, but he’ll come back another day an finish that. We were both tired, it was time to quit. We did take out the other metal shelf unit and brought in that curbside shopped oak and presswood piece. Oh my gosh that thing is heavy. I still don’t see how I got it into the van myself.
Thanks for all your good wishes, thoughts and prayers for this plumbing project. We were so glad there were no leaks when we turned the water back on.
Lunch was good, and we enjoyed our time working together.
That’s it for now. I’m going to eat a bit of supper and ‘hit the rack’ as they say in the Navy. (I was married to a sailor.) I woke up around 3:45 this morning couldn’t get back to sleep, so got up about 4:15.
Have a nice Sunday and I’ll post again later with pictures when we finish the job, which might not be for a week or so with that. Thanksgiving is this week.
