I think the gas line you are seeing is for the furnace not the hot water heater. and it looks like a sharp bend but its not just looks that way in the picture. I agree about caping the pipe and I will mention it to my husband. We have hung some drywall some has to wait till all the rest of the plumbing is fixed. We figured while we are under the house and changing out plumbing to the vanity and bathtub we would replace all of the galvanized pipe yes this adds some time to our reno but as of right now we still have access to the tub and toilet. Waiting now on the permit to change out the lines. I am going to be doing some research on the plumbing forum.
we also decided to go with Ditra for the underlayment for the tile. I had done a lot of research and chatted with some great guys on this forum on how to do it. Other than the Ditra costing more than we would have liked I am sure it was the better choice.
We had to frame out a small section of wall because of the new bathtub skirt being a little wider then the existing tub. This was the first time I had worked with framing but it was fun. I am a realy go to it get it done girl. Love this stuff power tools are my friend. So is the internet and the people here giving me advice and tips on how to do it right.
We are expecting the permit to come in today but I think we are going to start on replaceing the stuff today. I am sure that the permit will go through we haven't had a problem getting them so far for any of the renovations we have done even the electrical. My husband is an journeyman electriction and worked along side a seasoned one. it was I would say one of our least favorite projects yet.
I didnt take pics today because there wasnt much to see other than a couple of walls with sheetrock up. I will be sure to take more tonight. when we have made more progress.
