Why did we buy an 80-year-old house? We don't have a clue as to what we're doing. Though, as Husband pointed out earlier today, "winging" it has gotten us this far...so why change our tactics now. However, I'm sure that if we were instead following the "knowing what we're doing" school, things would go so much smoother!
I do believe we're at a turning point. Shiny new copper pipes are in. New valve for the faucet is in. Old drain pipe is out. We have about a four foot square patch of old wall slats to remove--once we replace the saw blade that broke on the lower part of the wall. Then I think we might actually get to set the tub in this weekend...or whenever we have a spare moment since Husband went back to work tonight. I don't think the police force grants emergency time off in order to complete home repair in time for the in-laws eminent arrival.
I thought I'd throw in some pictures for everyone's amusement.
