What did YOU do this weekend?

A harmless question, wouldn't you say? Harmless unless your weekend was filled with angst, sleuthing, digging, flashlights, swearing, trips and more trips to the hardware store, calls to plumbers and well pump companies.

This is how we spent our weekend.

It looks benign enough, but what a pain this was. The moral of the story is twofold.

The patch job done by us. 

  1. When it comes time to sell your house, it is REALLY a nice thing to have a fundamental, overall graphic of the property so the new buyers don't fumble around with the really important stuff
  2. Do the job right the first time. In our case we will (the plumber is coming on Thursday), in the case of the former owners, not so much.
