More plumbing was roughed in today along with both upstairs tubs and showers.  The porch roof now has felt paper and will be shingled on Friday if it isn't raining.



The smaller tubing you see below is AQUAPEX plumbing.  It is a plastic material used instead of copper for water lines.  It is supposed to be a little easier to install, cheaper, and the way of the future for plumbing.  We decided to go with it after doing a lot of research.
Here is a site that has contractors/plumbers discussing PEX vs. Copper plumbing:
PEX vs. Copper




Teresa's luxurious Kohler whirlpool bathtub.  It's six feet long (1 ft. longer than the tubs you buy in the stores...we had to find this one online), extra wide, and has lots of jets.  This tub runs about $1200...but we found it brand new, in box, on Ebay for $450.  I still can't believe we found it that cheap.  Our builder even commented on how nice it was.  It even has a very solid built in support platform underneath.


Partially finished open shower, which will be tiled and merged with the tile that will surround the tub.


The bathroom down the hall upstairs.  This tub is the exact opposite of the master bath tub.  It's small and lacks features.


The infamous "post".  We didn't want this here at all...but we couldn't get around it, so here it is.  It actually turned out better than I thought.  I was expecting it to be bigger and in the way.  I'm quite happy with the way it turned out.
