Instead of the metal trellis stuff, how about four columns running perpendicular to the front door, ending at the corner where the metal is now.
not the design, but the placement of a short gutter and rain chain
A pair of rain chains is a nice addition to the front of this home and will surely catch the eye of anyone who visits.
They also can become beautiful accents on a home. These copper rain chains hanging form the entry pediment provide ornament, a glint of copper, and add a new shape to this very geometric

Where was this gutter chain from?
My house has a similar design in that there's no awning on which to attach a gutter. The result is rain water dripping down the sides of the house and pouring onto the front porch. Looking for ideas...
Hi - that's a rain chain and they're available online at multiple sellers. Try here: http://www.rainchains.com/
This was purchased by the homeowner, so we don't have the original source. But a google search for "rain barrel chains floral designs" should get you very similar products. Anne/ Ventana Construction
driving rain, but this needs to be thought out carefully for function and aesthetics. The other thing you might consider is creating a small roof over the part of the porch where you're having the problem and attaching a gutter to that. Those last two options will have a real impact on how your home

Where and how much is the rain water system? Also what is the capacity?
Love the rain barrel, would like to know how to purchase
big barrel to catch the rain water
Consider adding a rain barrel. The average temperature in May is 85 degrees, and our average rainfall is 4 1/2 inches. The problem, as we all know too well, is that Texas is anything but average — our temperatures can easily soar into the 90s, and we can see May come and go without a drop of rain. So in areas
never been easier with hundreds of ideas circulating. Inside, consider installing low-energy lighting, replacing conventional taps with water-efficient fittings and only cleaning with natural products. Outside, think about installing a rainwater tank and growing your own herbs and vegetables.

Is the chain attached to a rain gutter above leading to a drain?
how is the wood installed by the door? And what species?
How far apart are the concrete stepping stones? What is the gap size?
How did you prep the area before laying the stones?
DOES THE CHAIN HELP DISPLACE THE WATER OR JUST MAKE A PRETTY SOUND?
how much money would this cost ruffle
Where can you buy those concrete rectangle pavers and how much?
Rain chains are actually very functional. The rain will drain down the chain, and into a receptacle. So yes, it does guide the rain water from the gutter to the ground. Then you can recycle the water in the receptacle
Very nice design. Is that chain working like a downspout for the water to follow ? And does it work well with minimal splashage.

Concrete pathway to front of house. We replaced ugly drains with rain chains made out of corten steel. Custom planter made out of corten steel.
love the chain on the corner.. details details..
drains replaced by Rain Chains -- how would this work in our climate/heavier rains than Napa.
Rain chain rather than gutters. Mid century defined by roof lines
chain for rain drainage and landscaping between the two sections
Going gutter free. Midcentury modern homes are usually defined by the lines of their roofs and beams, making gutters unwelcome details. Rain chains (preferably connected to dry wells or planting areas to keep water onsite) can be a handsome way to direct rainwater.

The copper rain chains were purchased from www.rainchains.com.
I am in Ohio and the rain chains in the picture freeze up all the time in the winter. It is actually pretty neat to see them turn into columns of ice. They have been up for 8 years and I have never had a problem with them.
I wonder how well they work in freezing conditions? I
Love the rain chains. Not sure it fits nor its function. Reminds me of life in japan.
hundreds of years ago, the kusari doi, or "chain gutter," is a simple way to carry rain to the ground in an aesthetically pleasing manner. The Japanese have used these chains on temples and homes over the years with the sole purpose of embracing the beauty of a rain-filled day.
