Piping was completed Friday at 4. They were in a bit of a scramble by then.The piping is done but it surely didnt go smoothly. Our neighbors had theirs done outside the house.....they may be smarter than us.
The final line has half a million right angle turns in it over the last 8 feet. The kitchen sink now fills rather slowly. OT can tell the tale. He was VERY glad I wasnt home during that portion of the event.
I'm suspecting a leak in the connection to the outdoor faucet which is disturbing. Oh yeah, and OT has to replace an outlet with a shallower one.
The drywall guy came yesterday to evaluate. The good news is that the price includes drywall, mudding/plastering (we have textured walls) AND painting so long as we supply the paint. The bad news is he cant start til late on Thursday. Im guessing that means he cant finish this week.
The previous owners left cans of most colors in the house tho most of the walls are Polar Bear white. Frustratingly, the colors for the holey rooms which are not Polar Bear white have gone AWOL. We'll keep looking. For one of those rooms we only need about half a cup of paint! For the other, a quart would be reasonable if excessive.

The quality of life issue for the 5th firefighter also was because he had severe lung damage. Not being able to breathe can be a problem....
Its sad and infuriating.

I wouldn't insist on the death penalty. I'd be willing to let the convicted arsonist be the front-line guy permanently assigned to fire duty in every single wildfire, until one of the fires gets him. It seems appropriate.
