    Default Gutterless House

    Now that I am a subcriber I will start a topic. One of the banes of my existence is having to clean my gutter of leaves and debris. What I would like to do is build or modify a house so that there are only gutters over entrances. My idea is to surround the house with a concrete apron that starts at the side of the house extends out past the edge of the roof. The apron would have a slight grade to direct water away from the house. Is this possible? Has anybody done it? Are there any other solutions for the Gutterless House?

    around here what they do is to put flower beds under the drip eves and then use a white gravel around the plants. the water is good for the plants and the gravel won't wash away as well as when the water hits it, it instead of pounding a hole in the ground sprays in all different dirrections dissapating the water
