Getting hosed

So our bathroom pipes clogged this morning and I called a plumber to snake them. All went well with the snaking until water started leaking through the kitchen ceiling.

The previous owner of our house did his own plumbing, and it turns out he used RADIATOR HOSE instead of plastic pipe in part of the bathroom. The snake pierced the hose; water went everywhere. Now the plumber says we need to get a carpenter to take down 1/4 of our kitchen ceiling so he can get to the pipes.

As you can see, Josephine's trying to save her mamas money, but I think we're going to need a real carpenter for this job. Until we find one, there'll be no showering, bathing, or handwashing upstairs.

I need a drink. And some money.

Oh no, oh no, oh no!!!!! I feel your pain! And I'd send my awesome plumber to you, but it's kind of a big commute.

Note: I edited this post after the second plumber visit of the day. We should have the 3rd visit tomorrow if we can take down the ceiling panel.

So what has happened? So unfortunate. What needs to come down from the ceiling? Drywall? Plaster? Is it really true that you need a carpenter or is that just the plumber trying to give his buddy the carpenter business?
