Longleaf Stories

full circle in the hundred acre wood

White pvc pipes are sticking up out of the red clay base now. The plumbing contractor and his crew worked all day yesterday laying the pipes, inserting coils of shiny copper tubing — too beautiful for burying — then sliding blue and bright pink plastic sleeves over the exposed portion of the copper tubing. I asked our builder, Ron, about the colored sleeves. He told me they serve two purposes: one is to identify cold or hot water; the other is to keep the copper from touching any concrete. Apparently, direct contact with concrete has a corrosive effect on the copper.

Various inspectors come out to say grace over each step of the project. One is due today to inspect the plumbing work. Once that approval has been obtained, the red clay base will be covered over with wire mesh and plastic, in preparation for pouring concrete next week.
