Plumbing a slab with no existing plumbing
Hi there. Great informative forum!
I have just purchased a very old log home that sits on a slab that has no indoor plumbing at all. Just a rural concrete ring well in the yard and an outhouse. The area is very far north and subject to long below zero freezing times during winter.
I am going to renovate this house to live in year round so will need to install plumbing for the kitchen and bathroom. I am not going to do any plumbing work myself, I'll call in a pro for estimates, but want to know how they will run pipes in this situation? I want to sound somewhat informed of the procedures involved.
From the information I've read on the forums so far, I assume they will just bust up the concrete to put pipes in but are there any other methods? Can you put in a raised wood floor and run pipes under that? I'm gutting the interior so anything goes.
I'm sure I'll have many more questions in the future, thanks.
