Been away from the computer (and phone mostly) for over a week now. Amy and i closed on our first home, and we had to do a few things before we moved in...which turned into a week of 12+ hour days with my dad who drove down from Salt Lake with a car full of tools!
The house was built in 1928 so it needed a few things. We replumbed the whole house in Pex to replace the old galvanized pipes, put in a tankless water heater, redid a bunch of gas lines, dug a trench to the garage to add 220v, hot and cold water, and a drain so we could put the washer and dryer out there, updated the main electrical panel, knocked a wall out in the kitchen to open it up, had to replace two floor joists from years of a leaky bathtub along with some other water damage in the wall, framed and plumbed a 1/2 bath...and a few other things i'm sure...plus moved out of our old house!
Couldn't have done it without my dad, the remodeler extraordinaire! Thanks a ton! My brother even came up on sunday to lay down some wiring and additional outlets.
There's still a good amount to do to finish the kitchen and 1/2 bath, but it's better already!
