Trench Diggin' Mafia

One of the lovely unexpected surprises of our new house was when the plumbing company told us Oh yeah, you're going to need to have a new drainpipe installed underground and it's going to cost you $2,500.  Cha-ching. 

I was like uhhhh that's a lot of money, so it must be really hard.  I give.  Here you go...

And my husband was like uh-UH...that's messed up.  Step off plumbing company, I'll just do it myself.  

So he did.  

He dug a tench all the way from here...

to there...{past where B is standing aaaall the way  to the street...}

He even had to dig under some crazy big tree roots...   

...and then of course, he had to lay some pipes.  

I have to admit I kinda wondered if he bit off more than he could chew.  
Not even close.  He chewed it up, spit it out and went back for seconds.  
{I know.  That doesn't even make sense.}  

In the immortal words of Salt n' Peppa What a man, what a man what a mighty good man...

*I know some of you are really wanting to see some pics of the new place...I'll post some soon.  But seriously, let's keep the expectations low's just our same stuff in a new house.  


  1. Way to go B!! It looks really green there. More pics please.

  2. Wow, I'm seriously impressed. And no complaining along the way???

    And don't underestimate the same stuff in a new house. Especially a cute house like yours. It's as if your furniture is suddenly transformed into everything you pictured it could be when you bought it in the first place.

  3. I love your house, it's gorgeous. Congrats! What part of Cincy are you in? Just wondering b/c I'm originally from Cincy.

  4. That really is awesome that he did it himself.

  5. I just heard about your big move, are you missing NYC yet? So impressed that you guys did this yourselves.

  6. That is the prettiest trench I have EVER seen. Now you know he could always fall back on this if needed. :) We were at the garden today visiting...and Paisley couldn't use your bathroom...I finally had to explain.

  7. Good job! Way to save $2,500. It will be fun to see pictures of your house.
