Plumbing at the Bungalow

Posted by Picasa

Tall Husband says that building a structure is like making sausage: The sausage may turn out to be delicious but you don't want to watch it being made. Above is proof: we learned that our 1920 bungalow has it's original underground plumbing...which has to be brought up to code. Codes or not, the old pipes aren't functional. The pipes which are visible were updated, so we did not suspect that they connected to antique pipes underground. Surprise!

We cannot wait until the next surprise.
But there is good news to report: we have a great team of architects, builder and plumbers.


  1. You are right about that. No fun! But just think how nice everything will work once it's replaced.

  2. OH NO! What a mess and what a disappointment!
    However, if you have a great team to correct the are ahead of the game! Really!
    Oh...and there WILL be surprises... :) Still..your home is amazing and worth it all when it is over..or rather until the next surprise. I hope this is the last of your surprises for awhile! :)

  3. You sound calm, confident, and collected.


    I live in a house that I love where a new crack appears often.

    Oh well.


  4. I hope your troubles are quickly fixed! Go team!

  5. I was very encouraged to find this site. I wanted to thank you for this special read.
