Leak Fixed, sorta...

I am so incredibly thankful for our skilled, amazing, contractor neighbor, Pete. He is a one man show. By that I mean he has single handedly remodeled our kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and every piece of moulding in our 1970's house. He is a plumber, electrician, craftsman, and soccer/ lacrosse coach. His skill set is in direct opposition to ours.......

Through American Leak Detection, we discovered our leak (They charge almost $500 - and they are CHEAP!) . It was underneath our front porch. Mike dug up the water line and BAM, there was the pipe, spewing water. Pete came over and had it fixed within half a day. We pay him but he gives us the "next door neighbor rate." Needless to say, WE LOVE PETE! Seriously, this man is our home maintenance salvation! We are lucky to call him neighbor and friend. Ironically, Pete doesn't believe in God.... Hopefully, fixing the pastor's plumbing will somehow change that. :)

The bad news is that we apparently have ANOTHER leak somewhere. Yes, we're about to begin this whole process anew on Monday morning.


  1. Thank God for Pete! I hope that they find the other leak quickly... that part sucks.

  2. I'm so glad you have Pete! Now ... onto the next leak. Bummer.
