And he doesn't think the wood's been soaked. Just the giproc. Which is all right, 'cause even if it doesn't dry properly (which it has been, more or less, every time it gets soaked) it'll get replaced when they do the big mass fix of our line of units in... uh... June? Sigh. That's a long time. But at least 'til then it won't be leaking actively.
Also: he thinks the water coming in under the wall is actually coming down from above, *inside* the wall. So if the pipe's fixed, the leaking will stop. Even the window. Which is also coming from inside the wall.
Ahah! I hear running-pipe noise above the ceiling leak! Sounds like victory. :)
He walked in and looked at the buckets and the ceiling and the yarn and said "Oh. Wow. That shouldn't be leaking like *that*..."
*eyeroll* Thanks, man. Took three months to get you in here just to get you to admit what we've been saying since then.
Now just to dry the carpet and cross my fingers and toes. *crosses*
