🏡 Went to Cottage today to check on new heating system & garage is being knocked down !
Everything seemed good with the garage, lots of rubble & soil to get rid of !
Then walked into a heated house, felt good, BUT
the kitchen had a different story awaiting us !! As the water system had been off for over a year & now our new boiler installed & water switched back on, the bath tap upstairs had a leak & has dripped down pipework & soaked part of the kitchen ceiling !! Of course we thought it was a problem made by boiler installation but discovered this leak under the bath so quick tightening up of tap & dripping stopped, luckily ! But part of ceiling fell down, so another job and hopefully be fine to fix !
All cleared up, no need for red bucket now !
Well that was a busy day, hopefully not too many more surprises but suppose that’s what it’s all about buying such an old cottage ! 🏡
Good job you found the prob really quickly. Old places can be such cans of worms once you start working on them but good luck.
