Dan's Plumbing Exploits at Inn Victoria in Chester Vermont

ok  ok.... I understand that a blog about plumbing at Inn Victoria in Chester Vermont, may not be an exciting topic for many folks.  Stay with me on this, it is worth it!

As I reported in a few blogs back, I've been building one bathroom from scratch in order to add an additional room & remodeling another.  Well this is a 161 year old Victorian, and so electrical and plumbing is dynamic to say the least.  So I hired two good professionals to help me.  Rich Stocker of Stocker Plumbing    http://www.stockerplumbing.com     and Frank Gould of Gould Electric in Springfield Vermont, are both great guys and at the top of their profession.  I can do the rest, fixture installation, new walls, finish, exhaust fans, etc.  I've worked hard to weave my work in between these two guys so that I am constantly one day ahead of them so they are efficient with their time when here.

Yesterday i felt so good about being ahead of the plumber when I finished screwing my last floor board down over his work....ready for finish flooring I said to Penny!  The next day Rich walked in and asked if I would remove the flooring underlayment near the shower.  "I think there is a nail in the drain pipe"..says Rich.  No way...can't be, say I as i undo the flooring to prove my point.



Well........I am just glad Rich is a great guy as well as a professional plumber.  Look closely at this picture.  I screwed the flooring down directly over the dead center of this pipe.

Fun times at Inn Victoria!
