It had passed the garden hose test a couple weeks ago. I guess a garden hose is no match for the wind and blowing rain. So now we're back at square one and I'm incredibly frustrated and on the verge of tears.
I don't know what the next step will be exactly. Maybe they'll pull down all the stone, replace the window, both, or neither. I'm nervous about the state of the OSB underneath it all. Is it the window? The stone? Both? One thing is for sure, it probably won't be done in time for me to unpack and decorate for my Thanksgiving guests.
I don't know much about construction, but a friend sent me a link to this article (click here) explaining how porous stone is and how it should be installed to create a drainage space behind it like brick has. I don't know if this is an option, but I'm going to ask J, at the risk of coming off like a jerk. I hope I don't offend him or come off like a know-it-all. Desperate times call for desperate measures I guess.
