And finally, the other side.

.

Because my husband never likes to rush things he moved around to the back side of the baby barn yesterday to complete the gutter installation…. 12 days after he did the front. Better late than never is his middle name.

.

.

Did things go more smoothly on the flip side?

.

.

They did not.

.

.

Miscalculation on length left him with two short pieces instead of the one long piece he needed which meant yet another trip to Lowes for additional connectors. Sigh.

Was the finished gutter line straight and true?

.

.

Not quite, but it doesn’t leak. That’s probably as much as I can hope for.

And if you’re wondering just how dry it’s been here?

.

.

Dry enough for the husband to a pan under the downspout to catch the small amount of rain we got last night.

Please note the green you see is all weeds. Most of the grass is still brown.

😕

.

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.
