Harriet Vane Posted November 6, 2011 Share Posted November 6, 2011 I cannot believe this. I have spent the last 14 years living in a 110yo fixer-upper. I have lived in major construction for months out of every year. I moved in late August to a nice little rental home, only to find out three weeks later that there was friable asbestos in the basement. We had to move in a big hurry and we also had to throw out a lot of stuff. We've been in an even nicer rental for just about a month. Last night we thought a toilet was leaking. We mopped up the water, turned off that unit, and let the landlord know. This morning we discovered more water. A LOT more water, both in the bathroom and in the hall and the closet and even the living room. The plumber says it's all "black water." The carpet and drywall and flooring will all have to be replaced. I cannot believe we're having yet another housing crisis. We won't have to move for this problem (thank God!!) but it's construction, yet again. I had just unpacked my bookcases--that's a LOT of books, covering two walls. I'll have to move all that, as well as a baby grand piano, to deal with all this. I must be cursed. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
