It's hard to hold a jack hammer and take a selfie. Sorry guys. Maybe I should have tried harder. And luckily I don't have any dentures or they probably would have ended up in the ditch.

Our dining room has double doors that open to nowhere. Plan was to build a deck off of it. I wanted a basic deck. Wife wanted a covered screened in porch.
That is way out of my skill level as you have to tie into existing roof. So I procrastinated. Last summer we had a contractor out to see about adding the screened in porch. We talked, and talked and ended up deciding on a window room that could be used year round. So ... we added a 20 x24 window room off our dining room.

The contractor tied the gutter into the existing gutter and we thought all would be okay. And it was, until we saw swarms of birds come to use our gutters as a bird bath. So, now we are having the contractor add the down spouts and I agreed to get the 150' of trenching and drain pipe run prior to him adding the down spouts.

Yesterday I laid the pipe and buried it just before the light rain set in.
