Simply Build It

Doddle - fit clips to shed with the fall towards the butts, you want a 5mm fall per 3 metre length. Clip in guttering and fit stopend outlet - ... nvt/431870

You need a stopend for the other end, and a length of downpipe which will go into water butt.

It really is as simple as it sounds.

As it's only a shed, i wouldn't worry too much. With a house faulty or incorrectly fitted guttering can cause problems.
