Do you feel like your “To Do” list is always getting longer?? Mine sure is! I’m convinced I’m making great progress and then something happens…something like this…
A LEAK…a simple leak, right?!
In NE Ohio we have had record breaking rain fall this year. It has seemed somewhat incessant. Several attempts were made to stop this leak but to no avail and so the rain moved in to our mudroom. It was leakin’ bucketloads!! FUN, FUN, FUN!!
Finally, a nice weekend (by that I mean rain-free) arrived and my men headed to the roof to take care of the problem for good (we hope 🙂 ) My Better Half decided to make it a teaching day so my three sons went with him to learn how to fix a leak and roof. Someone from our church drove by and said it looked typical…One man working and three supervising 🙂 Anyway the problem was solved and we have now moved on to fix the damage in the mud room.
The damage was pretty extensive and since there was little insulation in that room and the wiring had not been done properly, we felt we needed to do it the “right way” and tear things back to the studs. (ALWAYS FUN, wink wink)
We have now mega-insulated that room and hung the new drywall. We are in the middle of the taping process now.
I really don’t like big jobs like this. I feel like our whole house is in disarray when one room is torn apart.
Anyway, I am making progress and wanted to show you some of the awesome components that are going into this room.
Oh, wait a minute that last part was just a dream…I certainly would love a gorgeous door like this though. One of these days 🙂
I’ll keep you posted on the progress. We are having company in two weeks and I am determined to have this job completed by then!
