So, my damp problem



No, wait, that's my parents' kitchen, currently undergoing 4 months of being torn apart and being put back together, along with the whole rest of their house. There's no floor/ceiling in parts of it, it's pretty awesome - you can see the remains of a bathroom up on the right.

This is _my_ damp problem, after a plumber has come out, taken apart a bit of the wooden panelling, and prodded the bit underneath:

Not nearly so bad, right? Of course, due to the incompetence of the people that the insurance company foisted on me last time, he didn't actually know about the problem before he turned up, the person assigning the job to him hadn't read the notes, and thus I had to explain things to him from scratch. And there wasn't a pipe where we thought there would be, either. However, there's definitely _something_ going on, as the wall behind those holes is very damp.

So, he's gone away, and is going to get a surveyor out to work out what the problem is. Which is what I was hoping I would get today. Tomorrow I get to phone up and hassle them again...
