Oh, how I wish I had my archives from the Big Flood and the Mold Removal! You know, the one that took many, many months, with all of us stuck in 1 bedroom and exposed walls everywhere. This was all because of the after-effects of the Mother’s Day flood of 2006., it was so much fun! You can all revisit the exciting experience in a flickr set. Ugh.
Our new excitement comes from the hole in the floor. This goes from the upstairs living room to the downstairs living room. It means we don’t need an intercom, but that’s the only positive thing I can say. Oh, that and I wasn’t seriously injured when I fell through.
The landlord’s brother came by last week – once alone and once with the carpenter, and we arranged to have him and the carpenter here this morning at 9am. It was about 3:30 when the landlord’s brother finally came by with the wood. Now the wood is in the upstairs living room, and we have a basket covering the hole. the older girls posed with the wood.
If you look at the hole, you can see that they were closing up a vent hole from where a wood stove vented to the lower level. They didn’t do a great job of “fixing” it. Allegedly they will do a better job this time. We are on Day 8 since I fell. The carpenter is now scheduled for Thursday 9am. We’re going to be keeping close track of this repair job. It will not take the 13 months the last “repair” did.
Anyone up for taking bets on what time they’ll show up on Thursday?
