It’s been a little over a week since our water heater blew and flooded several of our downstairs rooms…
So it’s time for an update! The demo guys were here for a total of 4 whole days ripping out flooring, baseboards, carpet padding, bottom panels of our cabinets, and drywall in the garage. And now I’m currently left with a mess.
I’ll tell you straight up that it could have been a lot worse…if we had been asleep or if I had been grocery shopping when the old heater blew the whole downstairs of my house could have been severely flooded. So I’m thankful that the damage is not extreme.
Our home insurance has already covered all the demo work…but now comes the tricky part: getting a general contractor in to get workers in my home to get everything back to normal. It’s been a total of 6 days since the demo guys left and we’ve been sitting in a home that just feels unfinished.
The glass half full part of me is just thankful that the ugly vinyl kitchen floors will be replaced….happy dance time.
See…there is always something positive you can find out of a negative situation!
