The temperature today felt like Spring. Mother Nature is just toying with us, though. I just heard on the news that we are under a winter weather advisory for the next 22 hours.
What is that about red skies? Red sky in morning .... sailor take warning. Red sky at night .... sailor's delight. Wonder how that factors in the weather advisory as the sun is setting here with a nice pink sky?
Bathroom progress is painfully slow. He has encountered lots of plumbing issues. The new insulation is in and we are ready to put the tub in.
Work is interfering as he has to take calls. Just for fun I am going to suggest that I want the toilet moved to where he has it sitting. You can see the hole in the floor where it has to go. Still, it will be fun to freak him out.
Is this the weirdest drainage set-up you have ever seen? My whole house smells like that purple stuff on the pipes.
You may be wondering why we chose to do this in the dead of winter. It is the only time we have to get it done. As I sit here writing I hear him trying to get the tub into its space. I tried to offer assistance, but I was told to just stay out of his way. Happy to oblige.
He put the drainage pipe on the tub first, thus making the tub longer. Already a tight fit, I could see that it was not going to simply slide into the space. The 2 X 4 the tub is supposed to attach to is also jutting out. My suggestion to remove it temporarily was not well received, so I left the room to check in a camper. Do you suppose the nice lady camper knew that bucket sitting by the door into my home is my chamber pot?
I ventured in to check on him to see that he had decided to take my suggestion and remove the obstructive 2 X 4. I hear the saw and I smell the pipe goop stuff that stinks. Ahhh, the sweet smell of progress. Tomorrow the floor, then the toilet will follow.
