here but even since then we found more and more that needs to be repaired NOW. Of course the shower is a weird size too so that adds cost....as if drywall, insulation, lumber, new flooring and fixtures weren't enough. Ok, reminding myself that I am glad Mr. Lime can do this work and Calypso works at a hardware store and gets a nice employee discount.
As previously mentioned, we've had frozen pipes to nurse through the polar vortex because presumably the same genius who nailed subfloor to a dryer vent pipe ran kitchen plumbing through a poorly insulated and cantilevered section of the house. So since the bathroom was all open and exposed Mr. Lime felt it was a good time to deal with that problem once and for all. Next weekend he is replumbing the entire house (except for the powder room off the garage).
Oh and with the extreme cold and touchy pipes we've had to crank the heat up even more...oh and with open walls the heat is just going right through them. The two tons of pellets we bought in November are gone. Ka-ching...ka-ching.
This morning the toilet in the remaining bathroom overflowed all over the floor and leaked through to the garage. So just in case we thought we could get away with not addressing that just yet that has moved way up in the honey do list priority ranks. Undoubtedly, that bathroom will also be gutted to the studs. God have mercy....
this for dessert.
That said, I am grateful Mr. Lime is handy, Calypso works in a hardware store, I didn't have to wait for a tow in polar vortex cold and the tow truck guy was both quick and very pleasant. Also, I am VERY glad the transmission didn't give out when I was on the highway in 80 mph traffic on the way to work tomorrow morning. So there's that.
