Drip, drip, drip…
That was the sound we heard, and when we looked up, there was water coming out of the ceiling. The upstairs bathroom is directly above the dining room and a pipe decided it was time to start leaking.
Removing all of the damp plaster.
The damage went quite a bit further than first anticipated.
Lots of rotted out lath as well. Apparently, this has been a problem for quite some time.
The old lead pipe.
Time to call the plumber…
