What was your worst disaster?
What was your worst home-related disaster?
Ours was when we put a second story on our home. The GC watched the weather report which said it was not going to rain. They pulled the roof off, tarped it up. That night we got three inches of rain. And the people who tarped up the roof - didn't do such a hot job - although to be fair - there was quite a wind.
I woke up at two in the morning - rain was dripping through the hole in the ceiling where we had the ceiling fan above the bed. It was hitting the ceiling fan blades and whipping all around the room. It was dripping on my forehead and all over the bed.
We had buckets and tarps everywhere. Called the GC - told him my house was a rainforest. He showed up at 7am the next morning. He ended up replacing the drywall ceiling in the most of the house (his cost).
Which means we had to move all our belongings in the house into the garage. Which was not fun. And I was 8 months pregnant at the time.
I would love to hear all your stories. I am sure there are some doozies out there.... Please share!
