As you may know, I'm in the middle of redoing my kitchen. This isn't a
simple refacing project, but knocking down a wall, building up a floor,
blah, blah, blah. I think that we're six weeks into the project and look
like we have another two-four weeks left.
Thinking that this was the right time to buy an espresso machine so that
they could set a water line and outlet, I purchased a Vetrano (sorry, s/he
doesn't have a name as of yet) that's been sitting downstairs for a couple
weeks. I finally took it out of its box so that I could at least look at it.
Nevertheless, I've been very patient.
When I purchased the machine, I didn't know how much tubing I would have to
run to plumb it in; so, I bought 40 feet - mostly because it was cheap.
So, here's the punch-line. I just realized that I have all the tubing
sitting around and they already set the pipe for me. Why not see if the
tubing will reach from the new kitchen, down the hall, to the dining room
where espresso can happen? It runs the course quite handily ;- )
I'm planning to plumb this in tonight after the guys leave. (Of course, I
haven't mentioned this to my wife, but why would she mind having a water
line running down the hallway?) I'm also thinking about taping it up about
four feet from the floor so that any perspiration from the tube doesn't mar
our wood floors and my two-year old can't reach it.
There may be some really bad espresso in the house tonight! (anticipating
that it might take me a bit to dial in)
