It’s been 7 weeks since our flood and finally it’s almost time for the repairs to be started. Hannah and I couldn’t be more ready!
2 weeks ago they repaired the missing ceiling and I will say it made a much bigger difference then I realized it would and it was a welcome change. We’d been living with a gaping hole in the living room and kitchen for 5 weeks when the repair took place.
I was surprised how much every day noise went from floor to floor but I guess it makes sense when all that was separating the 2 floors was a sheet of plywood. It did make it easy to call her for dinner though.
Taped and mudded. I’d considered leaving the ceiling flat but it would be an additional cost to do so and in these days of finding extra $’s here and there it was an easy decision to have them put the popcorn ceiling back up.
I will say that I noticed it but just figured it was normal. I was pleasantly surprised when I found out they will probably be repainting the main floor because of it. What a treat!! A fresh coat of paint make such a difference! I’m going to go with a similar colour to what I have as everything has been chosen with the current colour in mind but will just be lightening it up a bit.
I received information from the contractor that the rest of the repairs should be completed next week and the week after. Woot!! We’ve been on hold waiting for the carpet to arrive but it should be in by Friday and the repairs can start next Monday. Yay!
