Flippers like to buy old houses and throw up 1/4" drywall and resell as 'renovated'. I bet if you drained your water heater you'd flush all the rust that's been settling in there from that galvanized pipe. You two look like you're determined to make it your own. Keep up the good work!

I'm thankful it's not all falling down and my mom is a wiz with restoring old plaster so we should be ok in the rest of the house.

We put in insulation and its ready to go through its first round of inspections!

Update time!

Last Saturday we had a bathroom BASH party and demoed the whole thing. This week we've been busy otherwise but got the insulation up, the studs shimmed out to clear the cast iron vent stack and got it all inspected. Woot! Drywall time!

This is so 1/4" drywall on 1/4" drywall on plaster. what the deuce? I'm thinkin it was never inspected. Just a hunch.
I hope you had good breathing protection for the beautiful wife... my hunch? Asbestos board. Inspection probably not required at the time. Wash your clothes THOROUGHLY.

absbestos dust is the killer, use a pesticide type spray bottle to keep everything wet with water as you work, along with canister type masks. -they're 30 each, and beats meso in the lungs. You'll need the sprayer for any wallpaper removal later.

as for the pex - it's pressure rating is VERY tempt dependent. I have it in my studio for air. It is awesome stuff though, and extremely easy to work with. Make sure you use the pressure shock dampers though, to mitigate movement on the new runs. Ask me how I know.

Good work sir. keep plugging.

By the way I did allow for more curving and my paranoia was unfounded. Way less work and less $$$ too. Thanks!
