What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to What Makes a Patio Modern?
The next three photos show the same patio space. It is a great example of considering function and views. It is part breezeway, part patio, providing a cooling breeze, shade, cover, and a wonderful vista.
From the rear the roof's slope reduces the scale of the house. This slope enables the rear to be more solid and the front more open (note the clerestories in the previous photo), but it also funnels the wind from front to back, most likely tuned to prevailing breezes.
John Hill added this to High Design for the Downspout
Here is a rain chain that ends in a large rock. This example also illustrates that the location of a rain chain should be considered in ways beyond the roof design. The occupants of this house can sit on the covered porch and enjoy the rain, both as it falls and as it trickles down the chain.

i would make the dogtrot half the size... also would make the wood in the dogtrot old rustic barn wood... wood on the back of the building would be limestone.. instead use a barn door for the entry into the hangout space?

Another way of bringing water from roof to landscape is the use of rain chains, increasingly popular in places outside Asia, where they apparently originated. Water follows the chain down to a splash block or some other considered patch of land. Here, two frame an entry; note the downturned gutter in the upper left corner.
