This is DIY-with-a-little-(lot of)-help-from-your-friends….
The major project Kurt helped us tackle was repairing the rotten yankee gutters. As you will see from the slide show, years of neglect led to lots of rot and water damage. Luckily the damage was contained to the gutter area and did not get into the porch roof.
Kurt assessed the situation, created a diagram and got to work. We used cedar lined with tin and the new gutters are a thing of beauty.
I’m going to see if I can get Kurt to comment on this post to talk about what he did in more detail — completely not my department, but he did an AMAZING job.
