And the Final Number Is…


The last check just came in from the insurance company. The amount The Dot and I are getting comes to around $108,000. This doesn’t count what the insurance company has paid the apartment, the mitigation crew, and a host of others. When you count that, the total damages probably came to around $150,000. Pretty amazing for just three days of a tub running. If there hadn’t been that little dip in the second floor, and the water had flooded over ALL the second floor, it would have been over $200,000. We’ve kicked in some of our money from the re-financing, and the house is looking pretty amazing. I hope the 2110 residents appreciate the work we did in 2010!

Dorothy is about 2/3 up the stairwell with the amazingly pain-in-the-posterior red wallpaper. With any luck, that’ll be all done in time for this weekend’s party (You ARE invited if you are reading this!) I’m getting ready to paint the basement rock & glass room.

It’s been a long journey…and we really appreciate all the support we’ve gotten.

  1. Not all that surprising, really. Have you talked about it with the miscreant? Take awhile to pay all that off…

    When the adjuster was over one day looking at the spoiled food we had to toss, I pointed out the box of DVD’s that the miscreant had left. “Tell him he can have ‘em back for $130,000″ he said. I laughed and told him that would never happen.

    I’ve had to be content with the kid saying “I’m Sorry”. That took 6 months on its own. I’d just as soon wash my hands of the whole thing, and just be happy that I’m back in the house.

  3. Thank you for any other informative blog.
    Where else may just I get that kind of information written in such an ideal means?
    I’ve a venture that I’m simply now operating on, and I’ve been at the glance out for such info.
