You can’t appreciate the good until you’ve had the bad! And boy, have we had some challenges over the last few weeks at Granbery Manor. Water seems to be our enemy as of late. Not only have we had major water issues at the circa 1807 home we’ve been working on, but we’ve had a few at our current home and a rental property we own.
But we’ve also seen some good progress in other areas, as we continue to try to find the source of all the water troubles (there are several sources). Old houses are the ultimate mysteries – with abandoned pipes and wires that lead to nowhere and hidden discoveries behind every wall. And it makes it even more tricky when behind every wall is solid masonry . . .
As we trudge on, I’m recording bits and pieces to share as we go along. Here are two videos to catch you up on the struggle and the progress. Let me know what you think!
