water

Inside and out...not only do we still have rain, the source of damp in the house has been traced to a leaky boiler.
The Man is there now, trying to find the leak...seems it could be multiple leaks...I think it just needs an overhaul...as does the woodburner, which has been sulking for two hours and just might be making its mind up to burn now.....if it was fitted properly it would work fine....

Now we'll have the delights of waiting for the lobby floor to be relaid...it was two layers of old vinyl floor over an assortment of concrete/tiles/floorboards/chipboard, paper underlay on top...now sodden...and cheap laminate flooring on top.

Oh, the joys of being in a rented house. At least we don't pay for the repairs and maintenance when they get done.......

we've also found where the water stopcock lives....under the electricity coin meter.....

I hope you get them sorted soon, at least the repairs are being actioned.

Aren't you glad you aren't buying? Although I imagine if you were buying such a place you would have had it gone over carefully and known what was going on!
Water stopcock under the electricity coin meter is not only weird but scary! Take care that your water doesn't become electrified.
Above all, stay dry!

Water plus electric anything, not a happy.

Hope the repairs get done quickly and you can get the house dry again. As you say, at least you don't have to pay for the repairs.

Not good being in a damp house though especially with the weather over there at present.

my stop-cock turns off the water supply to the house next door.
This is very tempting when the couple in there are having shouting matches a few inches from my head as I sleep, although I am far too cowardly to actually do it :)
