The waters have subsided, and we have three fridge-sized dehumidifiers running 24/7 in the basement. My emotions have also subsided – there is nothing quite like three evenings of digging holes in the glacial til to promote philosophy.
The insurance adjuster hasn’t yet decided if they will cover the losses – it comes down to a question of flood or seepage. Honestly, they should have been here helping to bail it out if they wanted to argue that it was seeping!
In the good news category, the restoration project manager is confident that we can cantilever the layout while the cabinets and floor are removed. So, it’s not an abandonment, merely a minor setback, perhaps only a delay.
Thank-you to all of you who commiserated and offered your support. You helped me through a really dark time.
