We have pipes coming and going every which way in this house. Seriously. I don’t know that either of us have every seen so many pipes, spanning so many years. We have old’ish pipes, we have really old pipes and then we have ancient pipes. Some of them we can figure out…others we just stare at and laugh. Some of them we have removed and others we will simply leave – even if we don’t know what they do. You know what they say: “If it ain’t broke…”

    I so enjoy reading your posts and your blog. When I was in the eighth grade at St. Hedwig school, I used to walk past your home every day and pretend I was a princess and that was where I lived.
    Thanks for sharing your adventure with us.

    I can only laugh at your dilemma, yet I’m sure I laugh alone- You do have your work cut out for you and I appreciate your postings and updates and can only imagine your headaches and the joy you’ll have at the end of your adventure. There should be a test on old pipes and what the heck they were used for, (no doubt you two will win) please keep us posted with your comments so we can share you discoveries and the great pics !

    I love your house. We thought about buying it. Back in 1987, we looked for an old house to buy. Nothing was available that we liked. So we started from scratch to build an old house. Back then supplies were not available like they are now.
    Thanks for the posts.
