House updates!

Well heres the old parts from the washing machine…


Puppy replaced them with all round ones again!

Then there was the kitchen sink…


The pipe rotted out.

And then it snapped…


As we were taking it out of the wall.

We had to get a new part just for it…


It was big.

Puppy was excited!


He had to borrow a special tool from work just for it!

He did a good job…


Even the inspector said so…


Now he’s resurfacing the walls in the tea room…

Before he reworks the shelves…


For my teacup collection.

Till next time…

    Wow! I’m guessing from the pictures of the plumbing your house was built in the late ’50’s or ’60’s? What a lot of work. I’m glad you posted though. I’ve been wondering what you’ve been up to!

    Isn’t it great to have a guy who is handy! I’m glad you got it all fixed without having to call in a plumber.

    Yes, it is a 1956 Hawaiian style bungalow down here in So Cal.

    From seeing pictures of your garden, I have often wondered what your house looks like. Of course, I still want to see the “after” pictures…

    Peter is working on bookshelves for my cookbook collection…it’s nice to have men that build things. 🙂
