The plumber came today, banged around in the bathroom for half an hour, and then left. He'll be back tomorrow with more tools and supplies, but nothing got done today. The demolition crew didn't remove the vanity or tub yesterday because they got worried about the plumbing connection under the sink. The plumber confirmed today that it is so old and in bad shape that he is worried about ending up flooding our house while trying to pull the cabinet out! He's coming back tomorrow with the jaws of life (I assume), and he'll need to shut the water off all afternoon while he cuts the pipe and rebuilds the connection. Or something like that. It sounded like, "plumber, plumber, $$$$, something, something, pipes..." to me. Anyway, that pushes the electrician back to Friday and the walls to next week. Fun, fun, fun!


  1. Oh my goodness! Wow!!! Is that an old window frame near the tub? Wild! Good luck!

  2. Yes! Looks like there was a window above the bathtub.

  3. Now you know why I almost had a nervous breakdown when we were building our house. No one would do what they were supposed to, when they were supposed to and it was always "cha ching, cha ching"!! It always took weeks more than it was supposed to.

    On the flip side - you will love it when it is done!

  4. How exciting. I can't wait to see the progress.
