Soaring Through the World

A Photo a Day: My Daily Sustenance, Day 184

The beautiful sink that became the lynch pin for  the remodel of my second bathroom is pictured here.  My poor son said that he'd never do another renovation based on a sink!  The problems have been never-ending. Two walls had to be cut into to change the location of pipes and electrical wires. Oh, and the wall tile!  I bought a kit whereas a double-stick mat is put on the wall and one places the tile on the mat.  Sounds easy?  It did to us.  But...it took much longer than if he'd just applied adhesive on the wall and place the tile on that!  Live and learn...
Even though Jeremy had checked numerous times on water flow, draining and the flush of the toilet, when everything was all put together, the toilet would not flush.  So up came six floor tiles (luckily they came up intact), the breaking of the cement board and cutting into the wall wherein lie the pipes.  He changed the height of the pipes, checked for the umpteenth time that the toilet would flush even with water in the sink drain (sink had been unattached).
 Suffice it to say, he thought he was finished yesterday.  Then he flushed the toilet once again.  Bleh! No!  It wouldn't flush...so he made a temporary adjustment so that it would flush.  But...he must find a permanent one, hoping that floor tile does not have to be removed once again, etc.


I love the boxes.  Fruit came in the rectangular boxes as a Christmas gift one year from my oldest son and his lovely wife and sons.  They were just too lovely to toss.  Besides their refreshing color, as a retired teacher, I like when words are used as a means of art.

I'm so glad that it wasn't me tackling that job. I've done so many plumbing jobs that I've learned that when one starts going wrong it's a nightmare.

GB,
It was a nightmare, but he couldn't leave it the way it was. Problem has been solved; I knew he would with time away from here.
