My uncle has this old house in the country that used to be owned by his grandparents.

Over the winters the pipes sometimes freeze. Last winter they did again. So he wanted to replace the tub with a shower, replace the toilet, part of the floor, and replace the copper pipes with pex. Take a look at the handy work I helped with. We worked about 7 hours Saturday and 4 hours Sunday.

Because of my size, I was the one of course to squeeze below the floor and replace the pipes and run the shower drain.

Trust me I’m not proud of my work here. But for a country house in Rual Missouri it’ll be fine. Also I was just a helper, doing the work along with my brother in law, and two uncles. Pete lives 2 hours away, and my Uncle Pat who owns the place is my Godfather. We didn’t get paid either so I don’t feel so bad slapping this together. We did get grilled steaks Saturday night, and leftovers for lunch Sunday, so there is that.
