Wanted to tell you what I have done this week. I am starting the renovations for my house, which I affectionately call my "Foreclosed Palace" (colonial revival cape cod, I think. The former owner was a crackhead carnie. His loss, my gain, I guess.
I replaced the original galvanized piping to the 2nd floor bath w/ plastic. I do not sweat solder copper pipe. Well, I can do it but I don;t trust my soldering, unless I might be making a sprinkler system. :)
I filled the pipes w/ water today, crossed my fingers and no leaks!! I suppose it could be easy to forget to glue a fitting somewhere.

I crashed................(I really need to replace that temporary light fixture. Especially since I am an electrician, huh!
