Of course it was after normal business hours and Hubby was at his teaching job an hour away and couldn't come home. No flash light in the house meant we couldn't find all the parts to the shop vac out in the storage. I was on the phone with a plumber trying to find out how to stop the flood as the kids bailed water. Thankfully friends drove the almost hour round trip to bring us their shop vac and we cleaned up best we could. Plumbers came the next day and snaked the drain and I started on the washing of every towel in the house that was used in the clean up.

|this used to be a bookcase in Bub's room|
|view from our bathroom into Bub's room|
through his bookcase/window the old owners just drywalled over on our side
|ripping out nasty peel-n-stick floor tiles|
(same wall as above before we ripped out the drywall and framing)
|BEFORE- badly built bookcase where a window once was|
|AFTER- bookcase removed. new framing and drywall|
If the plumbers hadn't dropped their light in the line where they did the break nor kitchen sink issues would never have been found. We know God was directing everything that day! No coincidences with Him :)
We have reframed, insullated, sound proofed and drywalled the wall between us and Bub's room. I don't have a pic of that. But it is WARM and QUIET in our bathroom now. We still have 3 walls open for future work. We have to run new shower lines, new electrical wiring/plugs/lighting and install a pocket door. I haven't been able to decide on tile, shower size, faucet placement, vanity style or the hundreds of other things that come with starting from scratch. BUT that is for next year!
