On Sunday night, everyone in the house was asleep (for those who don’t know, I’m living at my parents’ house right now). I was ready for bed and had gotten a glass of water and was on my way to my bedroom for the night, barefoot. As I was walking on the rug outside my bedroom door, I noticed it felt damp. I remembered that it had felt somewhat damp a couple of days before, and I had thought that my niece had probably spilled something on it. Well, now it felt REALLY wet, so I decided to take a better look.
Turns out there was a leak. The new AC unit my parents had installed just a few weeks ago was leaking, and leaked all over the new flooring they had installed just a couple of months ago. So now the floor in the hallway outside my bedroom looks like this:
Apparently, lots of water + laminate flooring does not equal a good combination. So they are testing out their homeowners insurance (which thankfully has given them great treatment in the past). Meanwhile, because of the industrial strength fans, it feels like we are living in a wind tunnel until the leak gets fixed and the new floor gets put down.
See who else is showing and telling about their home-improvement disasters over at Mel’s!
