Oiii House Repairs plague

My parent’s house is getting ohhhh so old…I walked into the garage last night and looked up at the ceiling and *gasp* water spots!

With a brand new roof and new skylights put in this last Spring, I got freak-me-out  nervous at this discovery. So I put in a call to our roofer – you gotta know there have been previous problems with our roof when you are on a first name basis with your roofer – LOL.


He was very kind and popped over today to check out the problem (he works Sundays too!!) but he couldn’t find anything wrong – EXCEPT we didn’t get the inside of the skylights areas “sealed” — oops forgot — the new windows were a different size than the old, so there are gaps….and it appears to be a condensation problem going on up there. The hot air is getting into where it shouldn’t and there is condensing all the way from the kitchen to adjoining garage. We were able to peek through a crack and sure enough there are tons of water droplets hanging off the metal –oopsie! LOL

So he’s referred us to a company that some of his customers have used with good results and a fellow is coming over on Tues to give us an estimate to put in a vapor barrier, dry wall, etc…Wow being a house owner sure is expensive with repairs. We are hoping this will solve the condensation problem. *crossing fingers, toes and eyes*



Office cat Chee Chee napping – I think she has finally caught on that Emily is not around anymore as she has stopped looking for her and still continues to be more affectionate than usual. Poor CheeChee.

Hope you all had a great weekend!!
