Plumbing progress

Andy has been steadily working on the plumbing in the bathroom.  It's a slow and not very rewarding job as the progress is hard to see and measure.  The biggest accomplishment over the past few weeks was re-routing the baseboard heat piping with a new pex pipe system.  Another annoying part of the process is that a lot of the work he is doing now is only temporary (removing plumbing to get the tub in place, re-routing the baseboard heat until the final loop can be installed, etc).  It's all part of the process, but that doesn't make it fun. 

 Before the plumbing work started.  The subfloor is still intact.

 Subfloor removed to expose the drain from the old shower.

 Pex tubing for baseboard heat.

 New drain line extension and supply lines for the shower.

Don't fall!  We had to open the floor/ceiling into the 1st floor powder room to expose the plumbing and also install ductwork for a future fan in the powder room.  That's the toilet and sink.  It makes for some strange noise transfer as you can now hear someone talking in the kitchen upstairs in the bedroom.  It took me a few days to get used to it and not constantly look around to find "where that noise is coming from"!
