Sorry I have been MIA... work is taking up most of my time lately. Just wanted to give a quick update on some recent service requests and some stuff we have been working on!
We've been getting leaks in our basement under the front of our house. There is a crack in the foundation at the spot of leakage so we assumed it was getting in through there. However, when RH came to check it out, we discovered that the water was actually getting up under the siding and coming in above the foundation. Apparently the culprit was an incorrectly installed stoop. Now they have to come back and take off a whole bunch of siding and replace park of our framing that is already water damaged. I'm a bit nervous because it's somewhat of a major fix, but hopefully it will go smoothly.
We had also been having problems with a banging heater, which they easily resolved with some extra screws where pipes were loose.
We lost some siding during the crazy windstorms down here last week.
And the final thing is the infamous shower! This is the third (hopefully final) time we are having our master bathroom shower tiles fixed!
We have been working hard on our family room! We did some painting last weekend, bought some awesome new furniture and I've been working on some DIY wall art! Progress photos to come soon!
We have resumed work on the deck as well! We are in the middle of installing our drainage system and we have ordered all of our PVC decking and railing materials, which should be arriving this week. Once we are finished I'll share the breakdown of costs. Let's just say our original budget was a little off. :)
I hope everyone had a great St. Patrick's Day!
