Today I spent some time atop a ladder (steadied by my beloved) waving an enormous long pole with a hosepipe hooked on the end of it. Eventually I managed to land the hosepipe in one of our plumbing vents.
So then I called today to try and schedule a plumbing appointment. Unfortunately our inspector was away from his desk.
Hopefully things won’t go disastrously wrong tomorrow and hopefully he’ll be able to fit us in.
We also tweaked our design – we now have a built-in seat for shoe on-and-off-ment*. And we have a cupboard in which to hang coats. It’s hideously unsquare largely because it’s attached to our porch framing, which the original builders put up while blindfolded and drunk**. But we *think* we can cover it with shims in the framing of the final trim pieces.
We’ve also decided how we’ll frame up the other cupboard.
And tomorrow I’m back to drilling holes.
* We are both overly excited about this.
** I presume.
