So we bought this property as a project to make it our 1st home together.
With that said, it is a project, the origional structure was built in 1926, beautifuly, hower in the years to follow the house has been "improved" by half assed measures. None of the improvements added to the beauty and charm of the origional structure. We discovered yesterday that durring one such "imprvement" the hose spigot was covered and is now convientally located in the basement?? LOL we have a lot of brush to burn ad can not do so until we re-connect the water. Well we can not reconnect the water because there are broken pipes and no outside spigot. The plumbing hasn't seemed to have damaged anything yet, but I have a feeling if we cut it on there will be an indoor swimming area in the basement! Also the apprently needed to use a washing machine so the fitted PVC to the spigot and ran it up through the floor. My question is, how do I create an outside spigot? And for the pipes that are busted, they are the ones that supply the kitchen, can I use PVC? Should I be getting metal pipes? Any comments are welcome, this is our 1st renovation project and are learning as we go. While it's exciting and fun, we do have room for lots of information and helpful suggestions.
