The water heater in the ceiling??
Not just in the ceiling but above our bedroom too.
Yup, should make for some exciting leaks...
I just realized something, is it normal in US to have an outside tap by the house like in Trinidad?
Yup, in fact our house came with 2 (there's one near the garage too) standard. We added the one on the patio.
i was wondering what was below
No solar panels?
Good thing you don't really have earthquakes because that would be trouble!
@mummy: not yet, they're expensive...
@Tammy: we do have tornadoes though...
I went with Lawrence to drop off a key for one of his mother's real estate clients and she shown me the property and it is a town house with a tiny yard. So I ask her where is the water tank and the pump? Do you know where it is located? LOL, They actually created a room under the stairs and put everything in there! I was like "wow, that is a total awesome way of hiding the tank and pump" LOL
and I still not too sure about the tank pipes in the ceiling.... just too many bad personal experiences with leaking pipes and incapable plumbers!
In BC water heater in the closet under the stairs is real common. When our heater went a couple years ago flood and damage was limited to the stuff in there - LPs.
We actually have big plans for the closet under our stairs (our "Harry Potter" room), you'll see after we've finished it all.
The water heater in the ceiling is very common here, in 1.5 and 2 storey houses. Knock on wood, but I've never lived in a house with a water heater flood - and I hope to keep it that way!
Nice article as for me. It would be great to read something more concerning this theme. The only thing it would also be great to see on this blog is some informative detail.
