Small-time criminals…

The plumber came, and brought a work estimate that would easily pay for the braces of his first-born.  Turns out that our current shower/tub set up is illegal under current building code.  I just hope the bathroom police don’t come knocking at our door any time soon-  I’m not going have the money to bail M out of building-code prison after we’re done with this project…

Our many offenses include: 

Our tub has a faucet coming out of the tub, not the wall-  Strike One.

There is no overflow valve in the tub- Strike Two.

The tile on the wall was just adhered to the plaster, and not to water resistant drywall-  maybe not illegal, but definitely not good- Strike Three.

So, while easy logistically to fix, it’s work and supply expensive.

We’re getting a second opinion to see if the price is in line for the work- and until then, adjusting to standing in ankle-deep water when we shower.
