Just what I always wanted!

A trench! I bet you wish you had a trench like mine, it's pretty nice.
Here it is the result of a lot of labor, a bit of stress, and copious amounts of dust. Rory has been cutting with a saw into our slab (on purpose) to make way for the plumbing to our "new" tub.
Here we have the existing plumbing for one of the sinks in the bathroom. The trench goes from there to the other side of the room.

Here's the trench leading to the tool box just about where the drain will be for our tub.

This is Rory's exhaust fan set up, it worked pretty well actually. He left the other widow open and had a little vacuum effect going. Just a bit of dust made it through the plastic shield he set up to our bedroom.

And here are the tools he did it with. Thanks to a fantastic friend of ours he got to borrow these very expensive and powerful pieces of equipment. A Bosch Jackhammer, a bulldog (mini jack hammer) and a skilsaw with a diamond blade.

The plumber came by tonight and said Rory needs to cut just another foot section in one area and then he can run our plumbing in. One more step in the right direction.
