Hi Cath, by looking at the picture you posted I don't think a gutter is your biggest problem.
By the type of trees you have, I would say you are in the PNW. Did you use concrete bags on the bottom row?
And it is way too close to the tree to the right. It looks like you have a concrete sidewalk right next to the building. When it rains you are going to get alot of slashing water on the building, not good.
Did you put two rows of barbwire in between the rows of bags? It doesn't seem that you have enough drainage around your building either.

Hello Evan,
I have been following the Ant Village logs since you all started posting. Although I do not envy the challenges all of you face, I am very interested to see how you overcome them.
Anyway, the reason I am contacting you is because you are the one who is most actively posting. I did see on Jim's log how he had a little set back with his wood stove.
To get to the point, I would like to offer him, Sean or even your Dad a free Portable Rocket Stove ( one free stove ), that one of them might like to try out.
It is an impressive working Rocket Stove, all metal on removable metal wheels. I would not recommend putting it in a permanent cob mass, but I am sure rock or brick around it would work great.
If you think one of the other Ants could and would put it to good use to help them get through the Winter let me know.
I will keep checking your log.
