Well hello, friends! It’s been awhile, I know. But goodness, have we been busy! As I was reviewing all my photos for this blog post, I got to relive what we’ve been up to for the last several weeks — a beach trip with middle and high school kids from church, two weekends of helping friends move, a thirtieth birthday celebration for yours truly, Mother’s Day in Seattle, a fishing trip on the Columbia with my dad, and a new job for Mrs. Fab! Meanwhile, we’ve been spending every spare minute at the house working on plumbing and electrical — what a project! The plumbing finally wrapped up at the end of last week, though, and I am proud to say that Mr. Fixer passed his plumbing inspection on Friday morning with flying colors (I had no doubt).
I am off to do some shopping for the next adventure in “Operation Fixer to Fab” (stay tuned… we’ve got some new digs!), but I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Memorial Day!
This pile of tubing and fittings grew and shrank, grew and shrank. Mr. Fixer would call up from beneath the house, and I would cut pieces to length and pass them down.
Looks like some sort of Halloween joke, huh? Mr. Fixer was in and out of our crawlspace more times than he can count!
Once all the venting was in place, we began to install the water lines. Mr. Fixer created this handy contraption to help unroll the PEX tubing.
By the time all the lines were in place, we had used over a thousand feet of PEX.
After – here is the plumbing manifold all hooked up!
We had tubing going everywhere!
Meanwhile, our faithful electricians were busy at work 🙂
And here it all is — all hooked up and ready for inspection! (Powder room)
This area is for the small wet bar/kitchenette that we will rent out eventually.
Island vent for the kitchen sink — the inspector was especially impressed with Mr. Fixer for this one!
