Comments: Building Days 7, 8, and 9

Hope all is well with you both.
As a retired plumber I enjoy your saga and have been missing it

mike - where do you live, how soon can you get here, and how much would you charge? ;) (and PS can you do email consultation?)

I've been retired 20 years so I'm not very up to date on current practice, materials etc. My advice would not be worth taking:-(

You might have known how to put a new toilet on an outside ground floor wall in a new build bathroom without wanting to put an interior soil stack in, effectively spoiling the 'rectangular-ness' of the new room, though...

Luckily so do we now, but only because I charmed the plumber who'd come to cap off the old water supplies (finally got here nearly 3 weeks after they started demolition work) to get some free advice.

Are you saying that the private's privates weren't private?

Exactly Steve, and I am still troubled by the extremely unpleasant visual memory of that afternoon, 31 years on.
