    turn off the water main?
    I see no other problem.

    Once, we had to replace a bathroom floor in a very old house.
    I thought we had the main valve shut and the saw was adjusted to only cut 3/4" deep. ...just in case any pipes was close to the floor.

    Who said that the old days they build houses better?
    First cut and we all run to find the "secret" water main...
    that was a mess...5 minutes into the job :(


    Ok, open all faucets inside and outside the house....

    Hey Phil

    Why did they cover all the boxes and crap and not the organ?????

    Nice looking place they have there.

    Tom, that pic was quite some time ago. Much different now. The organ is in the same place, but the surround and screen were relocated for the master bedroom which is the former choir loft area. I'll be up there this weekend and I'll snap a couple of current shots. Most of the work completed so far is infrastructure. They just completed electrical service upgrades, sewer tie ins, roof of the collapsed steeple and structural components for the loft/mezzanine area. Now they are getting into more of the formal design/finishing stages. The kitchen that I designed goes in next month some time (guess where I will be).

    Well, here are the latest pics from the In-Laws.
    My MIL is redoing the Trompe-l'œil and it is coming out pretty nicely.
    I have been asked to design the stairway leading up to the mezzanine where my MIL will have her art studio. It will be using 2x12's from the original framing of the defunct steeple, real 2x12's of oak.
    Enjoy

    That's because they actually play the darned thing and everything else is happening away from it. It got covered when they painted above it and it'll be covered again when they finish the other side and the kitchen.
