Well, he tried.

.

Last weekend my husband installed the downspout on our new back deck guttering.

.

.

For some reason (Far be it for me to question his process. But I did… and was told to go back in the house) he decided to reroute the water’s path and secured the spout to the side of the corner post instead of the front.

.

.

He was proud of how it turned out.

.

.

And while it passed the water test as far as leaks go…

.

.

With liquid gushing out the end freely….

.

.

I did take issue with the placement.

.

.

Because, call me crazy….

.

.

But unless the rain is going to hook a 90 degree turn and drain into the pipe as it’s supposed to…. we’re going to have a mess.

  1. Bit of Bonnywood trivia that is probably irrelevant to your situation but I’m sharing anyway: The last time we had the exterior of the house painted, we had them remove all the gutters. They were old and rusted, we have a pier-and-beam house so standing water water does not cause the same problems it would with a slab foundation, and the water doesn’t stand for very long, anyway, because we live on top of a hill.

    The house looks great without gutters, with pleasingly clean lines. And it’s one less maintenance item on our Life Agenda, which is a good thing, because neither Partner nor I will win any awards for our building-repair skills…
