This Space for Rent



The ground slopes towards the house by the front porch, so water coming off the porch roof tends to pool by the foundation (and then seep through and pool on the basement floor.) A band of storms is supposed to move in tonight, so I put a q&d hack in – I regraded the gutter line so that it slopes away from the house, then laid pavers to discourage the water from settling there.

The proof, of course, will be in the pudding, and if I end up with 2 inches of water in the basement I’ll know if wasn’t enough and I’ll have to try a different patch.
