Today was another tough day for me to have fun. I am not good at working on my back and looking up, and there is a lot of that in plumbing. AT times I get a sick feeling. (something like a fertilizer that was touted a long time ago, Vertego or something like that)
I did offer Sherry a chance for a photo op under the sink but she refused. She worked at straightening the Bathroom. It looks good. (Photo’s tomorrow)
I thought this was going to be an easy install. There was new kind of holder with the sink. They looked like they would be a breeze. Anyone installing sinks can tell you there are many number of ways sinks are hung and they are all tough because of the tight area you have to work with. the only easy sink is the Cast Iron sinks, but it takes two men and two women to lift them into the hole in the cabinets. The are surface mounted and their weight hold them in place.
Then under the house to attach the drain and water supply. I am using some old vinyl siding to slide under and out. All is attached but I worked over time (9:30) so the test for leaks will be tomorrow after church.
Son Jack, stopped by today, we had a desk out on the road to give away and he hauled it to Stephen and Jennifer's house. Steve needed a desk, not sure he needed on that heavy that sucker felt like lead. It used to be my office desk. Here he is bringing the rollers back. He and Stephen decided the next occupants of their apartment can own it. “They AIN’T moving it again!”
Oh, about the tail piece. Every kitchen sink has one or two tail pieces. They attach just below the basket in the sink. I started to finish the job and was missing the tail pieces. When I told Sherry I needed to go get a tail piece, of course she construed it to sound like something else (terms used in our youth), and of course decided to go with me and take pictures if necessary!
Good night glad you stopped by.
Tomorrow the place will not be finished, but it will look like it is, and I can clean up some of the residue from the job.
