My foreign neighbor who lives in the rooftop house next door to mine recently had her entire front over-hang sawed off because awhile back the Taipei city gov’t came by after someone on the 2nd floor complained that one of our parties were too loud (it was… we carried on until 10 am) and said that the roof extended too far out. So, the landlord had no choice but to get someone out here and saw the entire thing off. Now when it rains (which lately it has been… heavily) water comes pouring into the house when you open the front door and through the ELECTRIAL BOX in the wall. Obviously, since we both manage to take our foresight pills every morning, we find this extremely dangerous. Not only is water flowing out of this electrical box, down the wall, and forming a huge puddle on the floor all over computer wires etc… the landlord doesn’t seem to see much wrong in this and isn’t in much of a hurry to fix the problem. She said to give it a month… let the place pass the second inspection, and then the overhang will be put back on.
Since this entire country is already jerry-rigged, is there anything we can do to stop water from coming through the electrical box? I know the water isn’t coming into direct contact with the breakers (or at least i don’t think); it’s just coming out from the side.
