...inside the building! With all the rain we've been getting in Baton Rouge lately, we've experienced several leaks in the building. Never an acceptable sight, especially when walls have been closed up and floated (some painted). Roofer got a late phone call today.
For most clients, field hanging conflicts leading to a 6" ceiling drop is generally accepted. Not for this building (or client)! HVAC installation was halted today for what was once understood as a 4"-6" ceiling drop, now turned into a 10"-12" drop in ceiling height. Summoning engineers and subcontractors back to the drawing board.
After all the love and work put into this 75 yo. oak tree, it's livelihood is now jeopardized by the amount of rain we've been getting and the pooling of water around its base due to what looks like the city's backed up drainage system. Pumping water out until we can get a full inspection and assessment of the drainage problem. Continuing to be vigilant to help this tree thrive. This is worrisome and oh so upsetting.
