The plumber came out this morning just to get all the measurements and give us an estimate. The estimate he gave us back in November is, of course, no longer good. I understand that but we won’t know the price til next week, which, of course makes no difference at this point. The stove is at the store, paid for and waiting so we do what we have to do.
Also, we should have thought about this and didn’t but we’ll have to have a new electric plug behind the stove because the gas stove can’t use the 220 plug that’s back there for the electric stove. Vince was going to put the tile up this weekend but now he’ll wait til after the electrician does his thing because he’ll probably have to cut out some drywall.
The plumber fixed our outside faucets that all needed new bushings and washers.
He’s also putting a gas line into the downstairs garage so we can run our ventless propane heater in there, if needed (power out during the winter) to keep the pipes from freezing.
The electrician is coming Tuesday. I hope the plumber comes at least by Wednesday and then we can get the stove delivered!
It’s easy to get frustrated with things . . waiting so long for the stove, then having the gas line take at least two weeks to get installed . . but then I remember . . I am getting a gas stove and that’s what I’ve wanted for a year. We can get the people out here to do things, even if it isn’t on our timeline. I sometimes have to remind myself to be thankful instead of being frustrated.
