Darn, I think my hopes and plans for a gas cooktop and gas fireplace insert have been dashed. I had a plumber here today to give me an estimate to run the gas line and it turn$ out that it will be quite pricey. Our house is a side split and the side of the house where the ga$ comes in is on a concrete slab. The gas line would need to run around the outside of 1/2 of the house before it could go into the crawlspace and then across the crawlspace and up into the kitchen and living rooms. I had priced it out in my head based on rough ideas from the fireplace places that I had visited and was e$timating $1200. It turns out that it will be more than DOUBLE that. Egads! I do not want a gas fireplace that badly. I mean I really do want one and a new gas cooktop but that adds so much more to the cost of the project.
And we are STILL awaiting the glass shower doors to be installed. Tomorrow, hopefully. The installed showed up last week and the glass panel was the wrong size - off my about 1/2 inch! He had measured it and then someone typed in the measurement wrong when they sent in the order to the manufacturer. So frustrating!
Anyway, I will post the final photo once it is in.
