In the words of the great Yogi Berra, "It's deja vu all over again."
During the process of taking out the siding to fix what we thought (and hoped) was a small problem, that bit of dry rot where the deck met the house, we encountered more of an issue. Just like the other sliding glass door, this one had leaked, and had been leaking for at least a decade. To add to the problem, the previous owners had poured self-leveling concrete and then installed slate tile ON TOP OF THE DRY ROT.
So here we are again, fixing more than just a line of water damage. We're having to demo the concrete and slate floor back far enough to guarantee that the subfloor is sound.
My Charles is building muscle demoing with a sledge hammer, and I'm keeping busy cleaning up bucket after bucket of the heavy mess. At least we know how this works, and we were going to buy a new door anyway...
A blog about writing, art, projects, or whatever else tickles my fancy.
