Is the hanging wire rigged so gutter will swing under the overhang, out of the way? Or will it get ripped off the roof? Also—snow weight on that gutter itself—seems like that could get substantial, too much. How to handle the need for a roof gutter where snow happens as often as rain, and without buying fancy expensive products--that's been hanging me up for a ridiculous number of years. I'd love to solve that this year, good topic. Surely, someone's figured it out cleverly?

What if we designed our roof to actually collect and move the water where we wanted it to go at a collection point? Something shaped more like a modified parabola. Does any one understand what I'm getting at here? Like the curved roofs in the orient, only slightly slanted in an interesting architectural manner, specifically for directing the run-off. If I were more computer savvy, I'd upload a drawing somehow.
