Hi Erby, a thing of beauty and a joy to behold, you just don’t see quality bodging like that every day of the week. What did you write it up for, lack of duct tape ? icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif

What will homeowners think of next.
You would think that an upcoming home inspection would lead the homeowners into repairing this troubled area.
What's next?

I don’t understand how a pound of Shedd’s Spread Country Crock margarine solves this problem. Does margarine make a good sealant?

Russel,


Margarine does not work in the summer. This is only used in the winter months as a temporary fix due to weather fluctuations. During the summer months you are supposed to use tinfoil, (preferably Reynolds wrap). This is according to the local code "Homeowner fix 89708." ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif)

My Homeowner Fix book only goes up to 89658. Oh, never mind. I see that I have the 2002 edition. I'm leaving now to go to Borders.com and buy the 2003 edition. Time sure does fly. Christmas is just around the corner.

I wrote it up for improper drainage as the hose from the bucket was dropping the water to close to the foundation. I recommended that the extend the hose to move the water further away from the foundation.

That certainly looks a good job!


I might have also suggested raising the roof a little higher in order to get a larger bucket underneath icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif


I wonder though, was there any sort of pump?


How about a trap tp prevent all those earthy smells from migrating all the way up from beside the foundation?


I cannot wait to get my digital camera.


The pictures you will see!!!
