I’m no expert, but I’d say that there are a few ‘minor’ issues with this house.
If it wasn’t the large pool of water on the bathroom floor, then it might have been the constant “drip, drip, drip” coming from the ceiling.
I guess the heavy rain that day was a blessing in disguise…
Don’t be afraid to dig finger-holes in the drywall of that leaky bathroom if it means you can avoid making a $300,000 mistake!
I’m constantly amazed by the amount of do-it-yourself renovations that end poorly.
Home Depot and other similar stores have made their fortunes by convincing people to tackle renovations on their own, whether they are qualified or not.
Sure, they give the odd seminar on how to install kitchen backsplash, but I’m not sure how the “Do It Yourself Skylight” session went…
Just cut a hole in the roof of your house.
Then find a skylight that (hopefully) fits the size of the hole you dug with the back of a hammer and your buddy’s man-hands.
Then nail the plastic bubble into place.
Then use some Mono Foam or Crazy Glue and/or mud to seal around the edges.
You’ve got a skylight in the bathroom! Bravo!
Now, you just hope that it doesn’t rain from the very day you list your house for sale to the day the deal closes…Back To Top Back To Comments
