Another Long Day Ahead...

Had a water line leak in my house. It ruined only one room. The kitchen. I tore out the floor (Pergo laminate). I cut out several sections of drywall to find the leak. It was right at the slab foundation. Entire house had to be re-plumbed due to the fact that it was all early polybutylene pipe which has been known to fail. Because it is on a slab, the new pipe had to be run through the top of the living area. The plumbers had to tear out massive amounts of drywall to run the new pipe. I am now on day 3 of drywall repair. Working around my work schedules. 3 rooms to go and then texture and paint. Then lay new kitchen floor. Insurance only covers the repair of the piping and not the damage to the house. I opted to do the drywall repair myself because I wanted to insulate several of the rooms for noise and I did not want a bunch of scabbed in scraps that were cut out in the re-plumb put back in. Today, I get a break for the F-1 race. Yaaaay! Have a Tim Bell racing wreck at COTA in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge for your time. Kinda how my life feels right now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3ZafJ…
