Plumbing & Electric: Installment 1

I hesitate to blog about this simply because the photos may seem semi (or totally) boring to some. Alas, I write and provide pictures to let you know that we are not at a stand still, boring or not! We are trucking along. Things have definitely been moving slower, being that Chip's been proactively preventing scurvy on the beaches of Hawaii (jealousy presents itself). Chuck's been working really hard, doing as much as he can solo-style, and Brett's been working at the house as often as he can, helping Chuck some mornings, and dedicating his available weekend hours. This past Sunday we were able to get a great start on the plumbing, which I'm fairly certain hasn't been touched since the house was built in the 50's. We were able to get going on some of the electrical changes as well.

We had some cement sections of the garage (now our master bath) jackhammered out for our shower drain and toilet, only to discover a not so great foundation. We're still a bit unsure how to tackle this problem, but for now we're focusing on the plumbing.

Now, prepare your oohs and ahs as I present to you photos of said plumbing:

The following photo highlights the beginning of our lovely electrical AND plumbing, all in one! This here is where our kitchen sink will soon (or someday) go!

The following photo highlights our new electrical panel! Wow! Now I'm unable to feign fascination, but perhaps those of you who know anything about electric panels and the like will think this is cool? Well, feast your eyes on THIS!

And check it out: an insulated wall in our dining room!

A finely built soffit is awaiting cabinetry:

That's about enough excitement for one day. Hope you enjoyed the show. Stay tuned for future installments.
