Meanwhile back at the ranch…

.

While all the frenzied work in the barn has been consuming my husband’s mind and time?

.

.

This was happening inside our house.

.

.

Yet another roof leak.

.

.

We have walked the roof.

We have climbed into the attic.

We have replaced our chimney insert.

We have tarred, caulked, shingled, flashed and yes, swore repeatedly…. but still can’t figure out where it’s coming in.

.

.

Back in ’94 before we owned the home, a bump out addition was added to the living room…

.

.

And what I’m assuming is a load bearing beam… is where the rain always breaks through.

.

.

It’s beyond aggravating.

.

.

Not to mention ugly.

So back in the attic crawl space we went. Of course this means all the husband’s junk must be vomited from the den closet first.

.

.

And there’s a lot of junk.

.

.

Anyone need some slightly dated reading material?

.

.

This time the attic investigation revealed two possible spots on the roof where water could be getting in. Husband is guessing 3 squares of shingles will have to be replaced. But winter is upon us, and it’s not going to be a pleasant task.

Wish us luck.
