Coping with Heavy Rain

15 07 2010

Somerville experienced torrential rain over the past weekend, but the house (unlike many others) did not experience any damage. We had some leakage around the windows in Liane’s living room and bedroom, and this has been attributed to the dormer: since the roof isn’t yet finished, water had a much easier time of traveling through the various nooks and crannies.  However, now that the rain has gone and temperatures are soaring again, the guys are back at work and will definitely have the leaks patched up before the next storm.

Foam around the window: more of this stuff will be added to prevent future leaks
