Plumbing Project Phase 2

Plumbing Project Phase 2

The last phase of our lengthy plumbing project has been completed!  All of the original water lines in the attic were capped and new lines installed through the joists of the downstairs pavilion ceiling.  Some of the water lines were found to be embedded in the concrete block walls of the pavilion bathroom making demolition of a portion of the wall necessary to access the lines.  While we’re still in the process of repairing the masonry, we’re grateful to no longer worry about the many pinhole leaks in the original water lines running above the ceiling in the bedroom wing of the house. 

Photos below are of the original water lines in the attic, the new water lines through the pavilion joists and the masonry demo.  

What a transformative experience to view such an innovative and functional work of art that people happened to live in!
