...and so it begins

The bitter cold that
blew through my town on
February 1, 2, and 3
wreaked havoc with the utilities.

We were fortunate in that
there was no gushing water.
Just a small leak... ahem...
in the slab.
Unfortunately,
it is no small thing...

The demolition has begun!
The plumber has been here and left
after some under the sink work.

Now the demo team is busy...
 

This sink cabinet is on the patio 
along with the dishwasher.

Now we wait for the plumber to return...
with a jackhammer!

...more to follow.

Ouch, the real drawback to slab floors. We have them too and keeping my fingers crossed no leaks develop. Hang in there!

Sorry. I know you were hoping it wouldn't go that far. I wish you a quick (and afordable) resolution.

We had two leaks in a slab in a previous home. The third time, we decided to have the house replumbed. Not inexpensive but worth it.

Sorry about your slab problems and hope your kitchen will be better than before.
