if you needah, we gottah!

first, a quick update….construction continues to crawl toward completion.  cabinets have been installed; concrete countertops are in-process; interior painting is scheduled to be completed soon; backyard landscaping, patio and fencing should be completed next week; and, other odds and ends are falling into place.  HOPEFULLY, by this time next week the galvanized steel stair will be installed! so, in spite of the quiet here at the blog (my social media has been suffering lately due to time constraints), we have been pressing toward completion, albeit later than we had hoped for, but….

our awesome galvanized metal gutter and downspouts were installed a few weeks ago.  they’ve added a nice level of techno-detail to exterior.  in addition to looking pretty cool, they’ll direct roof run-off into a rainwater collection system (rain barrels) for use in watering the gardens and lawn.

nice gutter/downspout configuration at front entry court.  cool photo, too.

downspout installation will appear more sensible when rain barrel(s) and fence are installed.

Downeast Gutters from aurora, maine installed the gutter system.  their voicemail greeting is “if you need her, we got her”.  BUT, you MUST use wicked good downeast accent.  if you do, then it goes something like this “if you needah, we gottah”.  so, “got her”….”gottah” = gutter! got it?!

c'mon, tell us what you're a thinkin'!
