One of the big thing we have been doing is getting the side porch working for the Reeva so we don’t have to keep walking around the whole house to access the backyard. My amazing in-laws are here and we decided to rearrange some furniture without kids (romantic isn’t it). We moved the last plastic bin and the mold, musty smell hit Jeff like a ton of bricks. The squishy, wet floor made my heart sank because I knew that meant something was leaking and we needed to rip up carpet.
When you remove the carpet and see this:
You pray you caught it in time and that you don’t need to replace the the subflooring. Good news it passed the screwdriver and the bleach test but I still need to get under the house to see how bad it is.
Good news we found the source of the leak, the sliding glass door.
Bad news we need to replace the door and the whole entire living room carpet. I will say I will not be sad to see the nasty, original carpet go but I wasn’t planing on any more home improvement projects until next year.
I have also decided to stop talking about ideas for the house because Murphy seems to make them come true, lol.
