Oh Boy

July 22nd, 2010 at 01:15 pm

Being a homeowner is for the birds. No it just is frustrating right now. I thought I had my water in the basement solved but i don't. I went down last night to start the new floor and noticed water again. I ended up cutting a hold in about an eight foot section of drywall to see where the trouble is. I found where the water is getting into the basement, I'm just not sure how it's getting there now.

My next task is to cut the whole wall out and wait and watch. I'm starting to wonder if it's not my gutters in the back. My dad is a mason and he is going to come take a look at it. For that to happen is a story in itself, my family isn't getting along to well with me. Short story not happy with my choice of a women, since she's still going through a divorce. Should of waited, well i didn't no we hardly speak.

I was hoping to have the basement finished by this weekend because I'm throwing a birthday party for my girlfriends daughter. That isn't going to happen.

My stress level is extremely high right now, with the party, home repairs, money. I'm searching for techniques but can't seem to find any.

I'll update soon on where I'm at with my projects, debt, life....

    Completely normal and understandable that you are overwhelmed. One day at a time. Also look at the ground around your house and make sure it slopes away from the foundation.

    I was going to suggest the same thing as creditcardfree... all it takes is one area with an inappropriate slope (whether in the ground outside, or even in the concrete - like in our last apartment) and it will lead to water troubles like crazy. Good luck with everything, and I hope you have some insurance of getting things smoothed out before the party!
