Would it freak you out a little bit if you came home and found THIS under your house?No worries - it's not a squatter - it's a plumber! So I was actually happy to see him under there. I sort of expected that SOMETHING was happening when I pulled up and saw these:Where there be pipes, there must be plumbers. Hooray! And why are these plumbers so happy? Well, they are probably thrilled that we have lots of room for them to work under our house. They won't have to crawl on their bellies much because of our high foundation. While the plumbers were at work, Sam was busy doing all the complex measuring to figure out where our kitchen island would be best: I worried about him a bit - since the plumbers were drilling holes up through the floors. Hey guys - don't drill a hole in Sam! Here is a sample of their work in the guest bath - and some of Amber's bath to the upper left of the photo:Evidently, there will be some large pipes under our house. I sent The Offspring there (she could stand easily) to capture a little plumber action.She had strict instructions to not capture any "plumber butts" - but no worries, these guys are modest and professional.And guess what else? WE CHOSE TILE! A MAJOR accomplishment. Not all of the tiles are going to be exactly the same - but this gives you a general idea of how they will look:Each tile will have a different variation of color, which will break up the floor a bit.
We also chose backsplash tile, shower tile (for the floor), cabinet design and stain, and carpet! We have agreed on every choice - now just the appliances to purchase on Saturday, furniture to pick next week - and lastly, lighting fixtures.
