This Seems Familiar

Here is a photo of Terry doing a major re-model on our master bathroom in 2007 when we lived in Burnet, Texas. It was a big job, and one which we didn’t have quite enough money to do right (it was a parsonage). In the end, we weren’t too happy with it. I believe the pastor who came after us tore it all out and made it look great, but at least we made it use-able.

And here he is last week doing a major repair job on our bathroom here:

Our last house, which was another parsonage, also required a major plumbing repair in both bathrooms!

Bathroom repairs seem to be our lot in life.

The reason for our recent repair job is that a pipe to our hot water heater (behind the wall he’s working on), sprang a teeny-tiny leak. Slowly over time, it saturated the sheet rock until the tiles on this wall started falling off! The leak was easy to fix, but the wall, not so much. And then, once he tore into the wall, he found we had termites! The house had an inspection before we bought it, but, they missed them. I believe we caught it before serious damage was done, and that’s because of this leak. I thank the Lord for allowing us to find out before the roof collapsed or a wall caved in completely! He is so good to us!

I’m also really thankful that my husband can repair just about anything. He had never tiled a wall before, and I think he did a great job. The original tile had some kind of pattern in it, which we couldn’t match, but he got as close as he could for now.

We hope to someday be able to do a complete re-do of our master bath and an update to the bathroom in the photo above.

But I hope we can hire someone else to do it! 😉
