(Read this post for a bit of background)
I'm still dealing with this huge hole down to the crawlspace beneath my laundry room and I'm about at my whit's end on how to deal with it. I actually broke down into tears this afternoon after what I found shortly before noon today ...
Yes, I have mushrooms growing in my house - not down in the dirt beneath the crawlspace, but growing out the side of the damp, exposed subfloor.
(click to enlarge)Since no agency I've contacted yet has been very helpful, I called the structural inspector this afternoon to attempt to deal with him personally, but had to leave a message. If I don't hear something by close of business on Monday, I will be calling everyone I can think of on Tuesday morning, starting with the Dept of Commerce/Real Estate Division, the Health Dept and finally the media.
Large hole in the structure.
Black mold growing up the wall.
Musty dampness throughout that area and the bathroom (which is behind that wall).
And now mushrooms ...
I don't think I want to know ...
