Eaves Repair


Eaves Repair, originally uploaded by Stephen Downes.

Makin' Some Art handyman style. The snow and ice last winter took out our eaves troughs - and soffits, and the front part of the house. Having a tree fall on it didn't help. Rebuilding is in progress. Today we spent the entire day replacing the faschia board - that's the long board running horizontally just below the brown shingles. Which may not seem like much, except that we decided to reinforce the old joists as well, because the ends were a bit the worse for wear, so there's a whole lot of framing behind the faschia that you can't see. Tomorrow the plan is to put on the drip edge, faschia and soffits, all in aluminum. Fun fun.
