And I really need that toaster.
Long ago, when we first moved in, Mr. Man and I negotiated a limit on the total number of 'ongoing' projects allowed at any one time. It doesn't bother Mr. Man to have holes in walls, or floors, or ceilings, or a combo platter of ALL THREE. But for some reason when things in the house are askew, it totally freaks me out. It gives me hives and one really twitchy eye.
Believe it or not, ALL THE HOLES ARE RELATED (twitch twitch.)
Yes. He actually said 'explosive gases.'
We discovered the original vent for the sink. Unfortunately it's in the location of the toilet. So, if we want the toilet to stay in it's current location, we have to install a new vent for the sink. So we needed to rip a wall open to see if it was possible to put the vent in the wall (hole #2).
Now, at the same time, we are trying to insulate the attic. One of the issues of insulating is, you need to get a vent into the attic from the bathroom to deal with moisture issues, so we needed to.........wait for it.............poke a hole in the ceiling to see about clearance (hole #3).
Twitch twitch twitch. I'm singing that song about the Old lady who swallowed a fly.
I know of a couple who bought an old house.
They demoed the bathroom to redo the floor,
They opened the floor to check the joist,
They married the joist to a big steel plate,
They noticed the plumbing didn't look right.
They opened the wall to fix the plumbing.
They opened the ceiling to vent the bathroom.
I don't know why they bought the house,
You'll occasionally hear them grouse. (twitch)
