Take a Peek, At the Leak (In Our Living Room)

With all the rain that the hurricanes and tropical storms brought this summer, who would have thought the leak in our ceiling would come from another source...the air conditioner. Or more specifically, the window unit air conditioner in our master bedroom (which just so happened to be above our living room).

Basically, the window unit in our bedroom leaked through the walls, all the way down to living room, causing the water damaged walls you see in these pictures. Yes, Justin was pissed, cursing the fact that we do not have central air, but what can you do?

We have since replaced the leaky window unit, with a much noisier one, but we won't be needing it for long anyways since it's getting cooler. Although we are curious to know whether the leak caused wood rot in our walls I don't think we're ready to demo the wall to find out. Yes, we are playing the "ignorance is bliss" card, but in the meantime we'll just patch up the water damaged part of the living room wall and call it a day.
