We had been planning on finishing off the bathroom the end of this month- maybe, just maybe- extending it into October…sigh….foolish, foolish homeowners.
Yesterday morning, M came out from his shower and told me the tub wasn’t draining again. The day before it had stopped up- but we have an old fashioned tub (who am I kidding? Everything’s old fashioned) with a “waste” knob that drains the tub. We fiddled with that a bit, and everything was A-OK. Yesterday though, that same little trick didn’t work.
Instead it makes a horrible metal scraping on metal sound, then the unsettling sound of silence. It was kind of like hearing the roar of a steel tyrannosaurus, and then quiet, and knowing it’s about to eat you alive.
So, anyway, the plumber has been called- and should be arriving momentarily- and we figured that as long as we’ll have a living, breathing plumber in the house, we’ll also add on finding how much the shower addition for our tub will cost. We’re just moving the time line up a bit- which doesn’t happen all that often with our home renovation…so yay.
