Great shape to this roof. The pillar of the wall is expensive to get around, regarding time and material. With the gutter being installed at the beginning of the build, then closed in with the roof. Doing repairs or having any kind of problem with the gutter later, would be problematic. Best addressing this beforehand with an aluminum gutter made to order. An aluminum gutter can be shaped and joined to follow the wall, stepping around the pillar, and it won't corrode. When the pillar cant be avoided in the first place, this is the next best option.
This is the shed from the garden side. The water from the roof is piped back over the doorway to the nearest drain.
