Never Easy

In the process of laying the subfloor, just about to start putting the tile down, the tile guys punctured a pipe where no pipe should have been. You know where this is going, don't you? Pieces of cement backboard have been ripped up, a plumber called, and another multi-hundred dollar charge is added to my floor. Oh, and since the water has to be turned off to get it fixed, no bathroom or kitchen a day earlier than expected.

I sure hope this shit gets done by Wednesday, or I'll have a really long day at work on Friday. FMITGA.

Edit: The plumber only cost 75 bucks, plus I had to buy a drywall repair kit for another five dollars to fix the wall he had to cut in order to get to the breach. It's never easy.

Ended up being 75 bucks, so not as bad as I feared.

Oh good, that's not so bad. This is your house you're having tile installed in?

Yep. So tonight I get to patch some drywall, nail back the baseboard, and hope things go better tomorrow with the tilelayers.

Yowza. I bought tile to do my entryway...I'm planning to do it myself along with a mosaic or some kind of mosaic border.

I pay other people to do these things, with the expectation that it will cause the project to be faster and less error-prone. Sometimes, I'm wrong.

hehehe.... I've had it happen both ways. If you ever install a pool and want a custom mosaic piece, though, let me know. :-)

I'll keep that in mind. :-)
