It is now safe to say that the guts of our house are finished. Finished. Finito. Done. Steve gets credit for the lion's share of these jobs. He researched what he didn't already know, and sort of explained things to me as we went along. By now, since it's been weeks since we worked on the pipes, I have forgotten most of what he said. What I do remember is this: The high pressure pipes are small, the drainage pipes large. Primer is purple, high pressure glue is orange, and drainage glue green (though really it's clear). As you might have already guessed my only real job was to glue and prime, which suited me just fine because Steve did a good job threading the pipes through the studs. I particularly disliked that part because it felt wrong to drill holes through the house... like unmaking our hard work.
Below is a picture of the high pressure pipes as they go toward the sink, hot water heater, and outside connection.

And finally, a picture of the kitchen with all its pipes and wires, something of a mess really. Just out of frame is the little gray breaker box for our circuits, and it is the last thing that needs work. You can see the wire dangling out, waiting to be... hooked up or something.
