Update on the mold and mystery leak

So this happened late last night. I don’t believe in coincidences. This window is right above the sink / cabinet area where the mold is. After inspecting the window, apparently it’s not sealed very well. We had an awfully cold night last night and the dishwasher was running and warming things up. Between the cold air from the outside and the hot air inside, I’m almost 100% certain that mixture along with some moisture on the class caused the cracks.

I also placed a bowl underneath the pipes to see if I would catch any water dripping from the drains. It was dry all after noon, with my wife washing dishes in the sink, prepping dinner, and all that typical use. Not a single drop showed up until after we had some rain come through yesterday evening. Again, no way this could be a coincidence.

So the window will obviously have to be replaced. And the drywall will be coming out too. Guess my other weekend projects will have to get pushed back. Le sigh. It’s always something...
