Yeah I hear good stuff about PEX and how easy and quick it is to use but I'm going copper I just want it to be permanent we had some rodent issues before I don't want to take any chances with them chewing through it

Knocking on wood here. So far so good with the rodents here, I make them live outside. Plus I don’t want them to eat my wires also.

It helps if you resist naming and feeding them.

Officially all finished with removing old rock, cleaning out bays, foaming voids, insulating, new Sheetrock screwed in, taped and joint compound done. Have to go over it a second time and feather it out due to some low spots. I am by no means an expert but I'll take a warm room for $200 in materials and labor any day. Not sure how much I saved but I'm guessing over a grand easy!
