Yesterday I went into the backyard to prep the outer windows to the enclosed back porch for painting.
Back to my story. So as I'm scraping and washing down the woodwork I come upon some dry rot. See below.
At least it's fixable. Everything can be fixed, it sometimes might take a little longer than planned. One thing we're going to have to fix in order to prevent the rot from happening again is to put in a drip system. Otherwise, the sprinkler system will continue getting the outer wall to this porch wet and we'll have this same problem all over again in a few years time.
