my apologies, all of them are from our phones, it's what we had on hand.
The pipe that caused all the trouble, over a period of about 1 1/2 hours

The new wood paneling, once Joseph and Dad were done.
It is now painted a "white" color, and brightens up the living room so much.
I haven't taken the real "after" photos because we're still piecing it together. The insurance companies still haven't gotten back to us. We fall into a weird loophole: it's a flood, water from outside came inside. We live uphill so we don't have flood insurance, but if it had been water from inside our house it would have been covered under our insurance. So for us to get anything from insurance, our neighbors need to be found negligent, then their insurance would cover it. Shouldn't be too hard to prove negligence considering that they are never ever home, and this is not the first time they've flooded us, but the first time it's come into the house. Our guess is that the insurance companies are still battling it out, both sides have investigated. But because we have to live in the house we had to fix it or continue to be miserable with our stuff everywhere except where you really need it. We had the carpets cleaned and fixed everything else.
So there you have it.
