Eavestrough-Day 2

An early start to Day 2. Work began on the North side of the house, taking advantage of the neighboring school property.




Coming through the driveway gate to work on the back of the house. You can see the passage that leads to our driveway is between two houses. It's an ancient "right of way" that is still in effect from when there was a horse and carriage turn at the back. It's pretty tight, but there is just enough room.

We rarely use this driveway, but it's convenient when we have wood delivered or have work done on the house.



Coming full circle to the North side.




Job completed.

It looks great! Aren't you SO happy to have that over and done with?
It's so intrusive to have so much going on around your home. :)

Hi Laura,
Yes, I'm happy it's done, not so much because of the intrusiveness, but because of having a piece of gutter hanging off the roof for several months was so irritating to me.
Thanks so much for dropping in.

Anyes-

I didn't really realize until now how high up on a hill your house is! I've never seen a lift used to do that kind of work around here! Your house looks so beautiful from all the angles. I zoomed in on every shot!

Hi Pam,
We did not realize it either until we started calling contractors to get quotes. Some did not want to do the job at all. This guy was smart renting a lift. It took a day and a half (13 hours) instead of 3 days and he was within the same price range as the other guys who were using ladders and scaffoldings.

We should call it Hill Top House like Beatrix Potter's farm.

Have a great one,
XX
