Plumber's time - should this be taking so long
We are in the middle of a bathroom remodel. DHs friend is a plumber and DH always likes to give his friends work. This rarely ends up well for us, but that's another story.
This remodel is a total gut job, down to the studs. ALL plumbing had to be moved around: relocated toilet, tub, shower and vanity. So I expected this would take a fair amount of time. But he has been here for 7 full days and the plumbing is still only roughed in. No connections have been made to any of the shower or faucet fixtures.
To top it off we now have NO hot water in the small bathroom we have been using during the construction. There was some warm water last night but this morning only cold. We DO have hot water everywhere else in the house. This small bathroom shares a wall (with plumbing) with the one currently being remodeled.
I guess I have two questions...
Does this seem like a reasonable amount of time?
What could cause the hot water issue in the other bath?
If anyone has any ideas/experience it would be helpful to hear so I know if I am dealing with an incompetent plumber.
