Unplanned Leave

This is one of the more pleasant pics I could show you of an unplanned nightmare. I am going to spare you the nasty, gory details and just call it a major interior and exterior septic problem. Yeah, septic as in poopy. We hope to have things under control over the weekend and then it will be cleanup time. My studio is fine but there is damage going from one floor through the ceiling and down to the next floor. Nuff said.

I will be taking maybe the week off to get this under control and back to sanitary conditions. I need a motel.....Bunny

  5. Oh manw, what a mess! I'm on a septic, too. We just had some ceilings re-drywalled, and painted due to water damage, so I know what you're facing. Ugh. Sympathies.

  6. I am so sorry - that's one of the joys of country living! I used to be on a septic a long time ago and was so happy to be connected to the new sewage system. Good luck cleaning up and we hope to have you back soon!

  11. Bunny, so so sorry. Many years ago, in our first home, we had a sewer line back up into the basement. We were poor college students then, and rented the basement to a very fastidious young man. You can imagine his response. We tried to snake it out with a power driven snake-do NOT try this at home. We then called a professional and he looked over all and said "Well, you've pretty much got a t**d from the house to the street".

    I'll be thinking of you and waiting to hear that all is back to normal soon.

  14. Oh Bunny!! I am So, SO sorry to hear you're dealing with such an awful mess. Ugh! If I were closer, I'd put on my cute boots & bring a mop over to help. OR I would just give you the name of the nearest SERVPRO!! Let them do it.

    Supportive Hugs,
    Rett

  17. Poor you Bunny. I hope you get this problem fixed soon and it is easy to clean up the damage.
    We had water damage a few months ago, but thankfully it was clean water from the mains feed to our boiler. It still caused enough damage and inconvenience though!

  19. So sorry for the major mess. I can relate, unfortunately. I'm so glad it didn't hit your studio! Imagine the horror of that! Here's hoping for a speedy fix and clean-up so you can get back to your real life, but yeah, I'd be wanting a hotel, too.
