For this job, our contractor will trust only one plumber. Mike is a plumbing mechanic who takes notes on each room and spends time wandering the house before taking up tools, constructing mental layouts before he does "rough-ins." Here, he measures before sneaking in pipes between floor joists in the second floor hall bathroom.
"Few plumbers can get pipes pitch perfect in an old house," Rob says. "Mike's rough-ins are a work of art that nobody sees but people appreciate for years without realizing it."
