Home Home on the Natural Gas Range

Good Morning and Hello!  We are back up and running again.  We will be posting photos and videos of our most recent Projects.  We are NOT a contractor – Just a Friend Helping Friends.  Being a Master Plumber by Trade, and now a House Surgeon – we Repair and Rebuild whenever possible.  Never a Markup on Materials – no cutting corners and going well beyond any established Minimum Code Requirements.

Everyone deserves Safe & Sanitary Plumbing – Rich or Poor.  Your Plumber does more for the Safety of Society, than Doctors, Nurses, Police and First Responders combined.

Occupational Licenses no longer guarantee any quality of service.  Neighborhood-based tradespeople need to be encouraged, not excluded from the Marketplace by burdensome government intrusion into a Homeowner’s and Tradespeople’s private dealings.

Every day, we learn a bit more about this WordPress interface.  Previously we used cpanel and used regular ‘ol html code with a WYSIWYG editor.  This section will contain most new content, as we help Friends and Family with their Homes and Small Businesses.  Brew a cup of coffee, or crack open your favorite Tasty Cold Beverage and let’s see what we can Learn together…

My Brother Peter Excho has a 1957 Chevrolet Station Wagon, called the “Grocery Getter”, that he is in the process of Restoring.  One of the issues is, that when driving, Exhaust Fumes get drawn back into the Cabin, which isn’t good for any occupants of the vehicle.  So we installed 2 Stainless Steel Turn-Down pipes …

How this all began…

My first real Plumbing work began back in 1984, at the Ellicott Square Building in downtown Buffalo, New York.  I was a Porter, meaning from one day to the next, I could be helping any number of Tradesman.  The building Plumber was an alcoholic, and a Mean one at that.  One day, he pissed off the wrong Secretary being a sexist pig, so he was fired.  I was given his rolling Repair Cart, told to organize IT, and then beginning on the 10th and top floor, began rebuilding every Kohler Lavatory Sink Faucet and Drain, every Toilet and Urinal Sloan Flush Valve, getting advice and help as needed from the building’s Stationary Engineer and learning how to use the associated Hand Tools. (to be continued)…

Connections

You can find me on Facebook & Youtube – You can Twitter me – For the most part, you have to be a Friend of an existing Friend I have helped before, before I can Help You.  Word of Mouth is still the best form of getting ah old of me…

We’re Back!

After a few years of nothingness on this website, we are finally sharing some of the Projects and Repairs we have helped Friends & Family with.  Hopefully, what we post here can be of some help to You as well.  We tell IT like IT is – If I can’t fix IT, in most cases, IT ain’t Broke…
