Behind the motorcycle curtain...

Basically for the last couple months (and every day for the last two weeks) I've been working on this...


We bought our house at the end of the 'boom' as a project, and one of the pipes burst last winter, the shut off valve was wasted and we had to shut the water off at the street, so we moved out. Then a month and a half ago our landlord decided to sell the place we've been renting. Once I got into the plumbing it became pretty obvious that most of the old galvanized steel plumbing was trashed and needed to be replaced. I went ahead and expanded the bathroom too because the old one was smaller than most walk in closets and the water damage made us tear a bunch of stuff out anyway. Now we're moving back in. Its been an insane month and a half.


My boy Mike has been more than patient with the Panhead I posted pics of a while back, and she's almost there. Unfortunately we didn't get her to Born Free as planned, but she's gonna be a killer when its done. Hopefully next week I'll be back to motorcycle work and somewhat done with renovation, plumbing, and moving and get her finished up and post some pics.


I now fully remember why I got out of being a general contractor. But its going to be nice when its done....
