We moved lots of our stuff from the apartment yesterday and spent our first night in the house last night. Before we headed out for a celebratory dinner at our favorite Chinese restaurant, I spotted this outside the window and considered it a good omen:
The rest of my celebrating involved falling asleep while watching a movie. It's the same thing I would have done had we been at the apartment, but at least at the house I was already in bed when I fell asleep.
Unfortunately, we awoke this morning and discovered of a roof leak. If you stand in the hallway, you can see daylight (and water splashing in) where the chimney meets the roofline. So it seems to be a simple flashing problem around the chimney stack and not an issue with the roof itself (which was replaced in 2004). We have plastic sheeting hung up in the hallway to channel the water down into a bucket, and that seems to be working for the moment.
