|ugh, what an unfinished mess|
There is just one spot where the water just pours in (well, not really pours but there is definitely a pool of water after a heavy rain). It has really been buggin Steve. So, last night he decided to tackle it. You know, rainy season here comin' real soon for those folks who don't live in these parts.
|it's dry right now but this is our not dry spot...right at the bottom of the stairs and near the washer/dryer...can't tell you how many times my socks have gotten wet as a result of rain pouring in|
Steve pretty much figured out that the rain is coming in from right below our back door threshold. We don't need a permanent solution as we plan on replacing the deck next summer....it's truly horrid.
|area that needs some sort of weather protection|
1. Steve first used a skil saw to cut down the wood just in front of the threshold so that he could insert the flashing there
|aren't you done yet? I'm bored.|
4. Then found out that he bent it the wrong way-oops! and not fun, so rewind and restart
5. Used some roofing nails we had on hand to attach the flashing
