oops - January 19, 2009

How did I forget to mention?

I woke in the night to the sound of dripping. They make fun of me for being a "princess and the pea" but it saved us tonight. The house was leaking or something and I heard the first few drips in my sleep. We ended up taking off some of the wood (building with wood has it's advantages, drywall would have been impossible to remove and save) and looking around. I guess the verdict is that snow came in the roof vent during one of the storms and then melted and ran down the inside of the metal and outside of the vapour barrier. The solution is recontructing the vent for our high wind situation. We'll do that in the summer but it's a bit of a pain.
