Home Project: An Aesthetic Faucet Fix!

Our new faucets
   Aesthetics are a very important part of anyone's house, and Tom, being an architect is extremely aware of even the smallest details (which is why our house is so well-organized and well-kept - it's not because of me). Recently, Tom said that the two faucets behind the washing machine were sticking up over the machine and didn't allow for the space to be better utilized... like adding a shelf. 

You can't see the valves any more!
   So, Tom asked our friend Will to come over (Will can do any renovation from plumbing to electrical to building walls and installing windows, so cutting two pipes and making them shorter and soldering them was no problem for him. 
  Tom bought new faucet valves to replace the ones that were there (since the house was built in the 1960s), and within an hour, the faucets were lowered and hidden behind the washing machine. 
   WHAT'S NEXT?  - Tom is planning to install a shelf over the washing machine and dryer! 

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
