Our Plumbing Incident

Ok, so my husband definitely isn’t Mr. Fix It. We have been slowly remodeling our bathroom for 2 years now. Actually it has been ever since I was pregnant with my second girl. She is 19 months now. The former owner decided he wanted a tub and a shower stall in the bathroom, instead of combining the two.

Needless to say, I was getting too big for the shower stall, so I demanded that we correct the situation by making the tub into a tub/shower combo. Then we would take the shower stall out, and make it a desperately needed closet.

Anyways, we were able to get the tub/shower combo done prior to me delivering. The only part that went by the wayside was the closet. This past weekend my husband decided this was it, he was going to finish it. Out came the shower, and needless to say, he wasn’t too careful with taking it apart, so he literally broke the drain pipe.

Now we were stuck with a broken drain pipe and no way to fix it. Needless to say, we had to call a plumber. I searched high and low for one to come out on a weekend., and finally found one, who ended up charging an arm and a leg for 5 minutes of his time. I wish we had someone like the Roxboro plumber in our area, that way I would have known I wouldn’t have gotten taken!

Next time, no plumbing for my husband! The next project is to fix the hole in the ceiling of our kitchen. (he stepped through it when he was in the attic!)
