Yeah, I tried to find mastiff34
's construction thread, and perhaps convince him to do something exceptionally crazy, however I couldn't find any main thread of his. However, from reading some of his single topic threads, it's apparent he's installing a bathroom. That's an entirely different level of crazy.
Our master bathroom is partially ripped out because of the tiniest little boo-boo by the plumber when assembling the pipes. In the shower, we have two shower heads with separate controls. Well, these controls can also be used with a bathtub, but aren't so the pipe leading down from them are just capped off.
Well, one of them wasn't sealed perfectly and had a tiny drip to it. Even better, the novelty of having two shower heads wore off and the bad one got only minimal use in the beginning. So the between the fact that the drip was quite minimal, and the lack of use, this sat for quite a while. Later on into the year I decided to start using the other shower head. I have no idea why, I just did.
Well, eventually we noticed that one of the walls had some kind of green water dripping out and the baseboards were turning black. Things turning black are on my short list of bad signs. For extra fun, it would take about 12 to 18 hours for the water to seep over and come out the wall, so it was tough to draw a correlation between the shower usage and the water oozing out.
When the walls got ripped out, it smelled a bit better than death, but not by much. The builder couldn't get the tile from their supplier, but I was able to hunt it down under a different name. Oh yeah, this was reported to them in September, but we still don't yet have a functioning shower.
try to do a good job or else this will be your reward...
