Here is a house I did in Tarpon Springs Fl. For the local people. Main house is 22,000 s.f. Guest house is 5000 s.f. And a pool house back behind the main house. A total of 20 water closets. 3 urinals. $16 million house and was paid with cash. He owned a title company and sold it. Not even a year later and they split up, now he's there by himself. For an inside view go to housetrends.com click the tampa bay tab and type in Baumgart. There a 4 parts to it.

Call Jerry Glaser Homes located in Palm Harbor Fl. He also did Matt Giegers (basketball player) house a block away from this one. It ran just about the same.

I believe you, and I'm sure they wouldn't let you photograph jobs like that. Those big jobs have types of restrictions/considerations given the element of the situation.


What was the size of the main drain for that property, given the number of bathrooms?

4 inch sewer. 1 1/2 water. We also did Debartelo's house. The old owner of the 49ers. My boss had to sign a contract that he could not have different plumbers working on the house and photos weren't allowed there either.

We get that a lot when we do some of the Street of Dreams. They won't allow us to photograph anything (when they can catch us) but they do put our signage in the homes that we have done and give us the photographs they take for our marketing. Homes that size makes sense from a security standpoint. Cut some slack guys, have you never been proud of your jobs.

Well, I for one am damned proud of you. It's nice to see that someone is doing work they care about and better yet, nice to see someone is willing to spend the money to build a mansion like that. Must have been pretty sweet to make that your home for a few months.

I guess by the way you guys treated House Plumber it is safe to say that the mega mansion pic he posted has no plumbing installed and no plumber ever worked there...

Nice!

What I'm seeing here is there are quite a few members in here that mostly lurk. Some of these lurking members have done jobs beyond the wildest dreams of a few of the backwoods loudmouths that post pictures of a bull taking a dump on the forum. These Lurkers have little interest in exposing themselves to an arguement with a loudmouth whose specialty is PEX repipes of hunting cabins in the north woods...

A few nights ago I was in chat talking to one of these quiet lurkers and he was telling me about repiping risers in a high rise vs relining them and he was running the job...

Some of you might want to shut up and listen! Maybe learn something...
Or, maybe realize that slinging PEX through a 10 X 20 shed oops, I mean Hunting Cabin in the north woods really isn't the big deal you think it is...

Some people may actually do bigger jobs than you may think or, comprehend with your beedy little brain...:whistling2:

Why not start showing a little respect towards other members...
Let them say their piece...
Time will tell and postings will show if it's BS or not!
Not too much flies for long if it's BS...
That stuff has a way of sorting itself out...
Let the guy go and who knows you may learn a thing or 2...
Nuff said! I'm off my soapbox...

Your right Redwood. I feel bad
I did not believe him because I do see a lot of BS in forums and all over the Internet. So I take back the Hulk Hogan, MR. T. Darth Vader drinking tea with them thing back.

Someone does have to build these homes. Wish I was working there.
To House plumber I'm sorry if I did not believe you I take it back. Good job on working on such a nice home.
