We made a quick trip to Home Depot to pick up the eave trough and downspout for the front of the shed. I really doubted that we would even get that far today but we thought it was better to have it ready than to have to wait on it.
The temperature today was 52 degrees but felt like 30 degrees because of the wind. I was bundled up with two sweatshirts (one a hoodie) and a coat. I was either too hot or I was cold. The minute I stopped moving, I would get cold.
The last couple of rows went fairly fast. We were shocked. Before we knew it, it was time to hang the eave trough. Of course, I needed to make a quick trip to our local Ace Hardware to pick up a dozen screws for the hangers.
We only purchased 1 trough because we had a section left over from earlier projects. I failed to measure and just eyeballed it. Well, my eyeball was about 4 inches off. So we were not able to finish today. Tomorrow should go fairly fast once we buy another trough.
Time isn't on our side.
