I wish I had a football


Passed final inspection just before noon with only one minor task to complete. (caulking under the new toilet).

Still plenty to do.

Since the last update, the phantom plumber showed up and installed the correct toilet, but did not do the gas line. He said to go ahead and turn on the propane tank and start bleeding the lines even though he will be coming back to finish replacing about 6' of pipe.

So I spent HOURS first getting the stove to work, then the wall furnace so that the pilot would stay lit, but the furnace would not light, so I moved on to the On Demand water heater which has a long dedicated line and took FOREVER to bleed off, and in fact, it turns out it may not yet be fully bled of air (damn). Back to the wall furnace, found a broken thermostat wire, reconnected it and it still didn't work. (Meanwhile the batteries in the thermostats needed to be replaced) In the end it seems there is a break in the thermostat wire IN the wall, so the 3 Amigos will have a return engagement to fix that, install the pendant cable lights over the stove, and three halogen "Can" lights above the sink.

But YAHOO!!!!! anyway.

Oh, and the redone cabinet faces have disappeared, hopefully they went home with the painter to be stained and finished at his house and returned.
