When something’s broken and also too expensive to fix, what do you do?
Do you pay for the temporary fix you can afford, or borrow enough for the long term fix which is currently out of budget?
Our shower is leaking; badly. It wasn’t water proofed properly when it was built, so now we’re at risk of a busted pipe seeping water into the walls.
We can pay to have the entire bathroom waterproofed and renovated (it needs it), or we could get the shower redone and wait for something else to fail before retiling and waterproofing the rest.
I still don’t know the answer.
