Aaand…. DONE!

28 Jan

Today was supposed to be the big finishing touch – the gutter installation. Again, I sprung out of bed nice and early to move my car, and again no one showed.. Around 10AM there was a knock on the door. Not the gutter guys, but the dumpster guy! He’d come to collect his loot (dumpster). While I was more than thrilled to see that filthy beast gone, I was hoping to have it around another day or so to toss some random junk we have around the house.

Nevertheless, this was a very happy sight:

Just as I was figuring the gutters weren’t getting done today since it was quite frigid, the crew showed up. I did a quick walk around with the guys to show them where to place the downspouts and they got to work like gangbusters! They were done in about an hour!

Only installation pic I got because they were so fast & it was too nippy to go out!

Project complete with gutters. Now to add back our house numbers & mailbox (which is that white box at the bottom of the stairs)

Next up, we’ll have our favorite painter, Kerry Conroy, come in and paint all the window frames and trim work. (We’re holding off on painting the rooms unit the Spring, as we have a few other projects to do first.) He came by today to give us a quote, which fortunately was quite agreeable. Now we just have to wait until he’s actually available to do the work!

But for now…

... it's back to business as usual!
