Because nothing ever goes smoothly when my husband is involved.

.

With the hope that it will rain on our property sometime in this decade, my husband purchased gutters for our baby barn/shed and I attempted to help with the installation.

.

.

Since the project was my husband’s idea and he was in charge of purchasing supplies, this meant 3 forty minute round trips to Lowes and half the day wasted because he thinks making a list is a waste of time.

.

.

Did he buy the right size screws?

.

.

He did not.

Did he buy the correct downspout brackets?

.

.

He did not.

Did he buy a new section of downspout because the piece he had leftover from a previous project was too short?

.

.

I think you know the answer to that.

  1. I do a material take-off, broken into phases and reviewed meticulously before I buy anything. Then I buy only what I need to complete one phase and review the rest to make sure I don’t make a bunch of return trips or end up with any unpleasant surprises. I get them anyway.
    The short downspout needs a flexible extension, since a splash block won’t work. If not, you’re gonna have a big ass hole under your shed, and no one needs D.T. living under their shed. 😉

      1. In essence, what I am saying is “The best laid plans of mice and men”… I’m sure he already knows. And, if not, do you really want anyone telling him.
        Believe me, I feel your agony. I may try to get Cathy to make a special guest blog post about my incredible bathroom floor remodel. It’ll make you laugh and probably make you feel a little lucky.
