Turns out that when you have leaky pipes on the second floor that tin roof on the first floor doesn’t like it very much. Even if you put something over it, as the last owners of this house did before we purchased it. Sooner or later, something like this happens.
Now in all fairness, we did buy this house as a fixer upper. But, I was younger and dumber then, and thought I could fix anything. As it turns out, so far, I have been pretty good at the fixing part. It just turns out to cost a hell of a lot more than I ever expected. I was able to locate some tin ceiling panels to replace these at a place called (conveniently enough) Restorations. But imagine my surprise when each 2 x 4 panel cost in excess of $40 each (plus shipping).
So how was YOUR weekend?
