In building my dream house at Manzanita Oregon (N. Oregon Coast), I have thought of many ways to make it unique and the highest quality while being functional.
With a 4- valley roof (to attain the maximum height allowed) and a 3rd floor deck, I ended up with 3 valley collectors with down spouts and a small length of gutter and 3″ downspount around my 3rd floor deck. Unfortunately, this downspout had to run down the front of the house, turn and run back along side before running down into the perimeter downspout drain. Ugly.
So I decided to upgrade the frontal appearnace of this downspout, and the below attached .jpg file shows what I came up with.
What do you think?
