Tub's in; new water heater [Mar. 3rd, 2010|09:43 am]
Doug Ayen
The new tub is in, as is the new water heater. According to Eric the Contractor, they had to move the tub in and out four times before they got everything to line up and match. There's a small ding on one corner of the tub apron now, but even if it's not covered up by the molding, it can be trivially repaired.

When they took out the old water heater, there was so much lime in it that it took two of them to lift it -- estimated at some 150lbs, probably a quarter full of lime or more. The water softener, due to arrive on Monday, is definitely needed.

I'm going to go look at bathroom flooring after work tonight. Just laminate, at least for now -- though someday I'd like to get tile with radiant heating -- but it's not in this year's budget.

Still, everything is moving along nicely.
