Days 3 and 4

Where is the water coming from?

Water damage. Blegh. Not exactly what we wanted to see under the carpet. Thankfully, it doesn’t look like much water has been coming in at a time…but if it’s been happening for 10 years, we might have a problem. It rained for about 30 minutes on Saturday, and we ended up with a slightly damp 3 inch area around each corner.

Day 3, Sunday

Bought caulk, a caulk gun (how we’ve gone this long without a caulk gun I’ll never know), and new weather stripping. Weather stripping didn’t quite fit. Bummer. Looks like we’ll be making another trip to Home Depot.

Day 4, Monday

Cleaned out the gutters near the door and generally did all we could to redirect water away from the area. Caulked around the door. Well, Dave did all that. And I’m sure he did a great job. Now we’re just waiting for a good rain to see if we’ve made any improvement.

Fingers crossed…..
