    I think this is good enough?

    My guy was complaining that I didn't give him a good enough drawing to install this straightforward gas piping job. He has over 10 years in the trade and shouldn't even really need a drawing as he was able to stop by there and pre-inspect it himself the night before.

    Maybe the 10 years is getting to him, maybe he wanted pictures of the appliances. This is at the most a half day jod with one man. Looks pretty easy to me.
    It's refreshing to pull your head out of the box when servicing a system.

    Sounds like he doesn't like plumbing gas lines and was hoping you'd do it.

    Ya, the stupid thing is he took a day and a half to do it and it is 80% flex.

    I think I'm making the mistake again of thinking that others can do as I do. Guess it's time to strap on my toolbelt again.

    Instead of doing this:

    the problem with your drawing is-------------there aren't any measurements-------------no wonder he was confused
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    He visually went out and saw the job beforehand, does he need measurements at that point, plus it's mostly flex.

    Sorry, but that job is a no brainer.
