Further renovation summary

Posted 02-25-2011 at 01:03 PM by WillK

By November, moving out of my parent's house had become an imperative. Structural work was de-prioritized in favor of restoring function to the bathroom and kitchen, in particular hot water, a new gas stove and adequate insulation to keep the kids bedroom warm in winter. These goals were achieved on time to move in the weekend before Thanksgiving, but with more regular use of plumbing we discovered that the drainage system was obstructed. I rented a power auger and was able to cut and remove roots...
