The plumbing has been started at our new house and the rough-in is complete. That means a new water line from the street to the house, a new sewer line from the house to the street, and all the plumbing under the house as been installed and led up through the walls so it’s ready for fixtures to be installed later. Not the most exciting pictures but, it is what it is. Progress!
Digging a trench for the sewer line

Washing machine. Woohoo!
Kitchen plumbing for refrigerator
Master bathroom, plumbing for the sink.
How good is your imagination? We’re thinking something like this for the vanity, medicine cabinet and sconce lights.

Where Ali will be taking baths next year… The plumbers fill all the pipes and the tub with water to check for leaks.
I’m pretty excited about this. When our friends built their house, they added a hot water line to one of their outdoor faucets. Great for dog washing. Great for washing the car in cold weather. Great for filling up a kid’s pool (or water table or water balloons.) The plumber loved the idea so much he said he might install one at his own house.
So that’s the plumbing rough-in. Very interesting, right? Is anyone still reading? Chirp chirp. Chirp chirp.
