Exterior Tri-fecta: Garage Doors, Gutters & Chimney Cap

This week has been rainy - not stormy - but rainy enough to stop the exterior house painting. Luckily, the rain didn't deter other exterior improvements. We now have garage doors (gorgeous!), gutters (useful!), and a cap on the new chimney (raccoon-proof!)
 The garage doors were installed on Monday, October 22nd
Since power is not yet hooked-up, the openers are not installed. Luckily, Scott knows how to open them with his bare hands. (I learned to shut it by pulling on a rope...I know, it feels so "old school!") The mahogany color of the 8 ft. tall x 9 ft. wide fiberglass doors is a great contrast to the new paint (though not quite yet complete on the front of the garage.)

 The gutters were installed on Tuesday, October 23rd.
It's funny how something as mundane as gutters can make a house look complete. (Love the detail of the beadboard roof overhang soffits, too.)
The chimney cap was also installed on Tuesday, October 23rd. 
After work on Tuesday, I watched Scott install a new stainless steel cap on the new great room chimney. My duty was to keep my phone handy, ready to dial 911 should a slip-and-fall occur. Of course, he did a great job and the chimney cap was installed perfectly. Good job, Scotty!
Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
