OK - the job progresses. The Hot water pipes were clogged with so much rust and crud that I could hardly believe that any water was getting out at all. Removing the galvanized (only the parts that were in my way) was somewhat of a challenge - it had been there a long time.


Then I ran new copper pipes through the attic (easy)


But I had to rip a big hole in the shower in order to get at the galvanized pipes. But it's all new now.

Never an end to stuff in old houses, but another project checked off the list.

Too true - We've got the fixtures picked out, some are here others are not. Still loads to do...
