Has anyone seen my elbows?

Work on the plumbing started today.  Its exciting to start seeing the systems of the house being installed!  This is going to be a busy week!

Worker #1, "Has anyone seen my elbows?"  Worker #2, "Yeah, I saw them..."  Worker #2 gets the trash can full of elbows and proceeds to dump them all out on the floor of the shed (morning room) with style.  Work #2, "There's your friggen elbows!"  Worker #1, "That's a lot of elbows man!"



It's a water bib

And another water bib somewhere there on the morning room, honest.  Maybe I will take a better picture next time **maybe**

I think that I took this picture to show I had a vent there now, wowzers

More vents

House thrusters (starboard side)

It's fun to be at the YMCA

Hose bib on the west side.  Shiny new!

No seriously that is a lot of elbows!

Random pipes for juvenile sword play

The pipes are on fire! (way to go phone camera)

Those studs are BS (dining room)

OOPs (morning room shed)

Glad to see some good QA marks around the house (kitchen/morning room)

Warnings that will make you sleep well at night.  Fire, explosions, all that fun stuff.

HVAC space from the family room

Second floor hall bathroom

Sure why not a few more pictures of the same thing
Better be no unintentional leaks at this juncture!
The back of the pipes (hall bath)

Yet another view

So your going to see a lot of pipe pictures here (hall bath)

There is

The hall bath right above the family room

Hall shower
I think they fixed the hole in the insulation back there behind the shower!  Hard to tell but I do not see it anymore.
I wonder if that pretzel bag will be sealed up for archaeologists to find later :-)

Top of the HVAC column

The vent fan that will be attached to a humidity sensor

Someone better caulk that!

Where elbows go when they have been bad.... to the hole!

  1. Too bad you can't keep that pipe light open! I'm digging the elbows!

  2. I think the pipe light photos look awesome!

  3. Funky pipe light pics! Very cool.

  4. thats a lot of elbows....The house is looking great

  5. Hard to pic my favorite caption -- but house thrusters (starboard side) might be my fav today. You should totally start running caption contests.

    1. Ask and you shall receive! A funny comment poll has been added! :-D

  6. I see your house has the same BS mine did (but I'm pretty sure I have you beat).

    1. There is enough BS to go around for all of us ;-)

  7. Does every Ryan contractor out their elbows in the morning room? It's where I saw ours too!
