it's {jack} hammer time!

Admittedly, this isn't the most interesting --or aesthetic-- subject matter. However, it is part of the renovation process. It can't all be color swatches and tile samples!

As much as he dreaded it, John rented a jackhammer and jackhammered a portion of the garage floor. All in preparation for the new and improved plumbing.

Why go to all this trouble?

As previously mentioned, John is redoing the plumbing because we will be relocating the laundry to the garage. See renovation plans here.

And while he's at it, since he's redoing all the plumbing anyway, he is going to add a small garage bathroom.

When I was growing up, we had a small 1/2 bath in our garage and it proved invaluable for those days when you were working outside and didn't want to bring mud and dirt inside when going to the bathroom.

The picture above isn't "drawn" to scale. It just shows a rough placement of the garage's new features.


  1. I have to say I am loving your blog! Mostly because (like us) you guys are living in a construction zone and showing it how it really is. Not just all pretty once it's done. Thank you for keepin it real. :) Know we are going through it right along with you.

    Thanks! (and I love your blog, too.)
    To be honest, we haven't quite moved in yet. But that's just because we signed a 1-year lease at our (current) rental house. So, for several reasons, we're living in the rental while we get some of the bigger stuff out of the way.
