If you study old buildings you have seen a variety of gutters, none of which is the ubiquitous K gutter used today.  I have seen beautiful wood gutters (some lined in lead), copper gutters and, of course, the half round gutter so common on old Pennysylvania farm houses and barns. So I was thrilled to find half round gutter locally in Kutztown.
Alan started putting the gutter up last weekend and it looks great, I think.
Each run is 32 feet so the high point is in the middle and each half is pitched to the outside corner. Each corner will have a rain barrel.
I am hoping to use the rain water to water the garden, which is downhill from the barn.
