AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! The Music!!!!

Anyway...yeah...we have a similar problem with a leak we have to have fixed as well. I was checking it out these past couple of days in the basement to see what kind of mold issues we might have and what type of repair work we are going to need.

First off, this is a leak problem that is going to take a real expert to solve, because no real men in the family can figure it out. Aside from that, most of the floor in the foyer will have to be replaced and much of the small wall between the basement concrete wall and the upper level, about a ten foot span.

My biggest fear of the moment is having someone fall THROUGH the floor, so I was looking for any potential weak spots that needed to be supported.
