Time for Rain Gutters and a Fence to Keep it All Together

With the completion of the hookup of the fire suppression system to the City water main, we were able to hook up the rainwater drainage to the pipe that were laid beneath the new concrete sidewalk, install rain gutters and downspouts, and replace the chain link fence across the front of the property where the driveway used to be. 

Each rain gutter is one piece, no seams, extruded by the green machine in the back of the truck from a sheet of aluminum.

That is one long, single piece of aluminum sheeting, extruded into the shape of the gutter.  Here two men are putting it up, but only one man was able to put most of the others.

And here is the result.  Now let it rain!

With everything inside the fence almost completely completed, it is time to fence.
