Together they answer this question and more while walking through the project site. The roof design and hydrology of the space is reviewed along with an assessment of the risk to the structure to be built.  The "Water System" dives into the subject of a phrase Bryan call "Rain and Drain"  The facts reviewed include: 12" frost depth, Climate Zone 4C & 5C, Prevailing winds, sites slopes.  Bryan and Steven splash into topics like pitch, downspouts, gutters, atmospheric rivers and The Pineapple Express.  Throughout the discussion you will learn where the "water goes" and how a builder and architect plan for the success of the water management system.
