Now that the shock of seeing my demolished kitchen and knowing what it’s going to cost to rebuild it has worn off a bit, the project is actually starting to get kind of interesting. Especially since nothing has gone wrong (yet!) and none of my neighbors have complained about anything (yet!) The biggest unexpected bump in the process this week was the plumber’s discovery that the cold water shutoff valve is not in the kitchen next to the hot water shutoff valve — it’s in the bathroom next to the toilet. But after the plumber shut the cold water off, it wouldn’t come back on, because it turns out that the valve and possibly something on the line is broken!
