At the start of last week, it looked like only a few finishing details, like installing cabinet hardware and some touchup painting, remained. I thought I was in the home stretch. And then, as I walked in the door after work one day, I heard it — the unmistakable thwick thwick thwick of dripping water. The sound was coming from a corner of the kitchen, but there was no sign of water. As I pressed my ear against the wall, I realized to my horror that the dripping noise was coming from inside the wall. Listening through the wall, I heard my upstairs neighbors turn off their kitchen sink directly overhead. The dripping noise slowed and eventually stopped. My heart sank.
