Designed for our project, ‘Himalayan Mountain Home’, this detail was sketched to build a gutter for the single-pitched, standing-seam copper roof. As opposed to conventional methods, we chose to conceal the gutter by recessing it within the thickness of the pine wood rafters, in line with the wall plate which is 1.6m away from the edge of the overhang. This makes the roof edge extremely thin, merely 25mm of the plank thickness. The water-proofed gutter, finished with a folded copper sheet, directs water to distributed down take pipes which are concealed within the stone walls. Rainfall on the remaining 1.6m overhang of the roof glides down a drip mould at the edge.
