Thanks for stopping by!
We are two house-loving DIYers now onto our second house. One of us has vision...and one has actual skills.
Design and working on our home are our major hobbies, whenever we have a few moments of free time not devoted to our daughter or jobs. We are hoping to share our ideas, triumphs and mistakes to help other DIYers and get new ideas from all of you!

The plumbing sitch

Here is the culprit...the drain pipe that is to low to meet code. Apparently the s trap is not allowed these days...come on! It's retro! So 1920's.... Anyway, when the plumber said we would have to take out the sink cabinet...which was built in with a single face frame for the whole bank...which was already sprayed gray ...I said that's not really an option.  Luckily we could remove  the back of the cabinet and pull away the rosin paper, and it should be accessible  enough. I taped the face frame to protect Brent's spray  job.

We were super lucky that the plumber was able to come the next morning AND get the inspector here by lunch.  But ... replacing the drain pipe was an ADDITIONAL, significant cost.  I'm beginning to think I should have married a plumber :)

The final work looks great.  We passed inspection and so can finish the drywalling today (all behind cabinets, so no biggie).  ONWARD, HO!
