This one really falls under the idiot award for sure.
Guy calls me up, wants me to come over and give him a price. Now look at that damn flange. This is on the 2nd floor, floor was just laid down, no access to the ceiling underneath.
Talk about retarded people. Why in the hell would remodel a complete bathroom and look at that open sock for a drain thinking that's going to work????
I've had a hard week this week, That one there would have to have the floor taken up, take it back to the cast iron and that could become crazy insane intense real quick.
And why would I want to walk up and down steps to a 2nd floor bathroom?
Parking won't be in the driveway I'm sure. Offering me a can softdrink or a christmas cookie probably thinks that I'm a pushover for sugary drinks and snacks.
What this guy did is save me a trip, 10 miles away to "look" at this job.
It makes no sense, and listen up DIY'rs, to think your plumbing should be the least important part of the plumbing system.
What I'm looking at right there is $500 worth of frustration, just to start.
I'm just going to call him tomorrow and let him know that you put the house in before the foundation was poured.
