No more hole!

The fix-it man left at 3.30pm having put a new piece of board in the floor as well as putting some support beams under the floor to hold up the wet bits that aren't being replaced because it would entail ripping up the kitchen and hallway - "that will be done at a later date" is the word from the owner.. I estimate that the kitchen floor will be replaced when the cupboards fall through the floor boards.

The plumber arrived at around 4.15 to temporarily install the new hot water system in an out-of-the-way spot in the laundry until Tuesday. I can't open the laundry door due to there being a big hot water system on the other side - if I want to do washing I must go out the side door, around the back and through the back door. The fix-it man is coming back on Monday to re-cement and re-tile and the plumber will put the hot water system in it's right spot on Tuesday.
