Plumbing Rough-In

Our plumber, Tony (you know you're a serious remodeler if you have "a plumber" and he knows the way to the house without giving him directions) was here the other day and did 4 hours of rough-in and moved the water meter from the living area to the storage room on the other side of the wall. Here are some pics!

Here is where the water meter used to be (in the living room)!

Here's the water meter in it's new home in the storeroom.


Fireside Hearth & Home came and finished installing the fireplace the other day. As you can see, we now have fire (and as a result, warmth!). We were told that at some point we'll have to run it for 10 hours straight to seal it up and get rid of the smell it is generating right now because it's new. It's not a good "new" smell either, like the inside of a new car. It's not pleasant! Judging from what little we've had it on, it will do a very good job of heating the space. Look closely and you can see the reflection of the camera in the window of the fireplace!
