Freaky leaky

Wow, it's been, like, ages since I've blogged, right?

I was hoping my next post would be about our nice porch redecoration.  But no.

There's some Monday morning leaking drama first!  Augh!

When Ad went downstairs this morning - water in the basement!  But not a wee little water that sometimes seeps up from the floor, which we're cool with, but water dripping from the ducts!

WHAT?

We think it has to do with me having had a bath last night - first time ever in this house, actually.  And somehow the bath caused some leaking in the walls (!), and this got into the duct (!), and gross yellow/brown water is slowly dripping it's way out.

So I have the dehumidifier on 'desert', and we'll leave it for today, and tonight we'll do another test with the bath.  Geez.

Well, we had kind of been wanting to remodel the bathroom, but worrying about the extravagance of it, since it worked, but now maybe this will push our hand.

Oh dear! Leaking doesn't sound good!

PS - you still need to show off your amazing bedroom and the cupboards and everything. I loves them so much!! Ad did such a great job. Show. Show. Show!

Hmmm....no leak from showering, yet leak from bath...what is different...

Same drain, only difference is supply water's path to tub faucet...perhaps it leaks in the wall behind the tap...dad
