This morning when I woke up, I thought I had the world by the tail. It was early, I was going to get a good start on things, but I had one little underground plumbing thing on my mind. I decided to phone a plumbing installer and ask a simple question, just to confirm things, before I started digging little trenches all over my basement floor. In talking with the plumber, all of a sudden things started to get a little more complicated. I ask a lot of different people alot of different things as I go, and it seems I get a different answer from everyone. The plumber knows the codes. I missed something at the library yesterday. (It's pretty hard to make sense out of some of that, if you don't have clue to begin with). I arranged for a meeting with the plumber. He was talking about Monday, but I insisted on today. lol. I just wanted him to draw me a quick picture, because everything he was telling me, was pretty different from what I had planned. I am glad that I decided to phone him. The trouble was that I had to wait until 1:15 pm to see him, but it was well worth the wait. Then after the meeting, I was busy running around picking up the new plumbing supplies and tools etc. I wasted no time, but I sure don't know where the time goes. It never goes by that fast on the paying job.
I threw in a couple more pictures of the old hole in the ground. To anyone looking, it is probably just a boring dirt hole in the ground, but I am pretty proud of my new basement. So far the hoe is still going strong, although one hydraulic cylinder is leaking pretty good. I'll have to see about warranty, as I just spent over $400 on it within a month. I sure do get tired of taking things like that off to take back to the fixers though.
Well anyway, I do feel like I accomplished alot today even if it does'nt look like much got done. I would by far rather waste a whole day than to get something done, then have to redo it anyway. Sounds like the bale hauling expedition might get started on Monday. I'll work some long days trying to get that all done. Might as well grab some overtime while it is there I guess.
