The main part of the ceiling is finished:) Only the section in the bathroom and refrigerator area still to do. In the process of doing this I getting ready to make a template for the section of wall between the bathroom and the refrigerator. I noticed that the plastic 90° female threaded elbows looked a bit weird. One of the elbows was protruding out of the plastic collar ring further than the other elbow and they were both a bit on an angle coming out of the collars. Long story short - the elbow came right out of the collar and water sprayed to the ceiling! Good thing I was prepared and set up to test it just in case it did this so there was a very small amount of water that came out. Thank goodness that didn't happen after I had built the cabinets and we were out camping!
In any event, disaster avoided and I know how to easily fix the problem - but I can't believe how stupid the design is on those threaded elbows. We're very happy with how the ceiling looks!

Calvin here - after spending almost 33 years in education as a high school teacher, elementary teacher, and elementary administrator, it was time to retire! I did so happily and with no regrets; it was a terrific and fulfilling career. I do enjoy building projects as the design and building process is very therapeutic and you see a completed functional product in the end. Now to combine the build with another of Angela's and my passions - travel - is something we're really looking forward to.
