Default Built to Rent

A talk show mentioned built to rent housing developments. The houses are on the modest end of the scale. A nearby town might have something like that. There is an area of identical duplexes. They don't look like anything fancy from the outside but people at least have a little yard and a garage. The garages are in the middle of the duplexes.

Some of ours are a lot better done than that

its surprisingly big inside and has a small yard at the back for each unit.

Not for rent either, each one is owned.

Yours is stick built and the way the roof water is done is completely
****ed.

What's ****ed about the roof water? Since it's in the West, where water
rights are to my way of thinking frankly crazy, it's possible that the people who
own or live in the house don't own the rights to the water that falls on it.
If that's the case, they must let it run to wherever it has always run.

That short section lying on the ground next to the path
isnt going to last long and the vertical looks bad too.

But don’t have to do the pipe in such a ****ed way.

In my dad's last house but one, there is a heavy galvanised
chain from the roof eaves with a small square of gravel at the
bottom like with that pic. That looks much better and will last
forever. Works the same water rights wise if that applys.

Did they let the water drain right down along the foundation?

If so, that - to use your word - is ****ed.

Usually these "rain chains" are used where the eaves overhang the
foundation by quite a bit.

It's standard aluminum downspout. Nearly every house in the
U.S. has the same thing and it lasts as long as it needs to.

Nope, the gravel pit at the bottom of the chain is the top of a pipe that
takes the water out to the road kerb and into the council storm water drain.

If so, that - to use your word - is ****ed.


It works fine in sandy soil, it’s the same as before the house was there.

Yes, and it was a flat roof in a very heavy rainfall areas where decent
eaves are useful when coming home when its raining heavily.
