I can definitely see that being an issue, although I've heard placing them low enough will avoid the personal experience. I often see metal roofs with no gutters, but usually on designs where I wonder if they have simply forgotten. This design is obviously well thought out so I especially appreciate your response, as I recognize your attention to detail. I would still be concerned about erosion(although I recognize the pad around the home in this photo) and water splashing against the home. Any thoughts?

Well . . . in Vermont nature tends to have her way with us for sure. The nice thing about the metal siding is that it wont rot. Also, creating nice hardscape site elements near or under drip lines can help. You see some of those in this photo. The landscape architect was Wagner Hodgson in Burlington.

Clean design, lovely use of corrugated metal - for our purposes, I think I would reverse the colours almost, i.e very light blue-grey sidings, with white (tinted 'matching' blue hue) for window/door frames - and a daker roof perhaps.
