So this isn't really a remodel yet. We discovered a leak in the concrete slab two days ago. We called the leak detector people to come pinpoint the leak. The plumber then came and proceeded to dig about 4 1/2 feet down and 3 feet square only to find that the leak is not where they other guy thought it was. Now he's on his way back over here to dig a second giant hole and possibly remove our sink and cabinet to find the leak. It's going to cost a minimum of $1,500 for all of this. The plumber also said to expect our water bill to be really high since we think we've had the leak at least 3 weeks before figuring out what the problem was. As the plumber was digging and working, a man from the gas company came and said our gas bill has quadrupled (from the water heater running continuously) in the last month so that's going to be another $200-300.
Hopefully the plumber is going to find the leak relatively easily today, I really don't want this to end up costing any more. It looks like it's going to be a week or more before I have a bathroom with a shower again. Good thing both sets of our parents live in town so we can either stay with them or shower there if we need to.
X marks the spot, or so we thought.
