Leak has been Fixed!

I mentioned in an earlier post that we were hoping that the new PVC trim we were adding as we re-sided the house would solve a problem we had with water leaking. This is the trim, and it has been caulked really well.

The water was somehow getting between the house and the add-on laundry room. Apparently the people who built the house didn't seal that very well, or else when the concrete ceiling (back porch stepping out from the dining room) sagged it created a crack. When we renovated the laundry room, we also fixed the sag in the ceiling, but it didn't fix the problem.
This is the doorway between the office and the laundry room. The water would drip from there during heavy rains. Since we just had over 4 inches of rain and no signs of dripping water, I think I can safely say the problem has been fixed! Yeah!
