The plumber came yesterday morning to install the shower fixtures.
I met him upon his arrival to tell him the water had not been connected to the conservatory bathroom. The plumbing had been run, air tested, and inspected but the pipes had not been attached to running water.
He actually started in the conservatory bathroom attaching the new shower head and trim it.
Then he headed up to the master bathroom to do the same thing.
Charlie helped him drain the house to basement level so he could connect the lines which had been marked hot or cold and insulated (since they ran in a crawl space).
He added valves in the basement so the water could be turned on and off to the conservatory wing.
I asked him before he got started how much extra it would cost and he said $200-$300 which seemed reasonable to me. I was happy knowing by the end of the day I would have running water in both new bathrooms.
Do your projects sometimes seem like you’re on a roller coaster, all uphill then swoop?
