WE HAVE HOT WATER!!!!
My parent's handyman came out and hooked up the water heater. However, he didn't do it the way that I wanted it done (which only slightly annoys me). I also don't think he did it correctly but for now I have hot water and I will have to fix it in the near future.
Big-D also put a door handle in the garage door.
Now we have a door that opens and closes.
Over and out,
