Kitchen Plumbing update


We’ve been silent for awhile, but we are back! With fun photos to boot.

We’ve made considerable strides in the kitchen. First up, is the plumbing.

Quinton has completely re-plumbed the Kitchen sink drain per our failed plumbing inspection. His first attempt was to do ‘exactly’ as the inspector requested, but unfortunately a section of the old pipe was completely clogged with over 100 year old ‘stuff.’

After draining over 10 gallons of water from the pipe, he pulled it apart to remove the clog, which sounds like the best solution, but with a 100+ year old house a clog looks more like tar and isn’t what you want to stick your hand into. So he cut is out completely and replaced the whole section of pipe.

Tomorrow is our re-inspection.
