Well, hopefully our plumbing problems in this building should be over with. Of course, there is still a lot of cleanup to go yet. The building has all new plumbing... er... maybe I should plastic-ing, as there are no metal pipes in the building anymore.

This is the corner above and beside the bathtub. This is the major junction of where the piping to the third floor comes in. The big white pipe is the drain while the red and blue are the supply lines.

This is the ceiling in the bathroom. They had to pull down just about the entire ceiling in the bathroom in order to plumb the upstairs apartment. This should show you why I can hear the neighbors as well as I do, there's about 10 inches of dead air space and no insulation. Oh well, that's what you get in an old building.

This is what the pipes that were removed look like. It's a little hard to see, but you can probably tell that it is chock full of ick. This is why no water was moving and every few weeks we were getting a new leak, the water just had no where else to go other than out the pipe.

Well, I'm now running late for work. Hopefully in the next few days I'll have clean pictures to put up!

Peace to all and may your projects come together.
