We have Plumbing! [sort of...]

Jordan pipe-fitting the water tank.

The first flush ever!

Jordan from F&D plumbing worked this Saturday to get our plumbing fixtures hooked up! We had a few hiccups, as he forgot to bring his CC key and a leaky valve connection- as he grumbled at the not-quite-level concrete floors. He was able to still make it a momentous day!  We have three toilets connected and one tub before stopping for the day. Hopefully by next weekend, we will have some of the sinks hooked up.

The toilets we used are low-flush Duravit and Villeroy & Boch toilets. I didn't install dual-flush toilets for a couple reasons. First, we were able to get an amazing deal on the designed-by-Philippe Stark 6L flush toilets. Two, we are planning for future rain-water toilet flushing. So, in our case, the cost of installing a cistern will be deferred until it makes for a more better return on investment. We already have the rough-in and separate piping for the rainwater harvesting ready.
