I was recalling the classic cartoon from The Electric Company today, where the plumber arrives at a house and knocks on the door, and the parrot asks, "Whooo is it?" The plumber replies, "It's the plumber. I've come to fix the sink." But the parrot never says anything but "Who is it?" So the plumber becomes increasingly frustrated that no one will let him into the house. After several go-rounds of this, the plumber collapses in a fit of rage. Then an old lady comes home, discovers him lying there, and gasps, "Who is it?" The parrot answers, of course, "It's the plumber. He's come to fix the sink."
That did not happen today! Although the plumbers did arrive; they worked. The plumbers moved the sink pipes, the water line for the 'fridge and the laundry room/closet pipes. Before today, the laundry pipes took a little detour outside, just begging to freeze up. No longer a concern.
Have you ever seen the movie, Lethal Weapon 2? My son commented on the fact that it's nearing the holidays and we have walls of visqueen ...now if Mel Gibson would just show up...the Mel of 20 years ago...
Dave built a temporary wall of visqueen and two-by-fours between the kitchen entry and the rest of the house. It has a zipper in it! This should keep the dust down from the drywall guy, and I bet from the tile guys too. (and Lily out)
Looking into the kitchen from the rest of the house.
Dave took down the pocket door and built the arched entry. It looks perfect! It's just the right touch to tie the original part of the house, which really is everything, to my dream kitchen.
Where the pocket door used to be! Poor Lily, stuck on the outside away from the action.
Tomorrow the drywall guy comes to see the mess. No Friday night homemade pizza, unless I go next door and use my MIL's oven.
