Porch complete and the things we do to save money...
I rented a big jackhammer and went to town on the basement floor so we can move the main plumbing stack. Carroll and Sons plumbers will be on site Wednesday to start the drain rough ins. With everything moving we didn't feel comfortable enough getting everything to code so it's better to just hire it out. Once the concrete was broken up we had to dig down a couple feet. Not the easiest job in the world, but the plumber was going to charge us $425 to do the work and all it cost us was a $60 jackhammer rental (and a solid 4 hours of hard labor). The things we do to save a few bucks!
We also moved around some framing upstairs today. It was hot and we went through quite a few bottles of gatorade, but we got it done. Now we have a better laundry room layout and gained another small closet in the master bedroom.
