The picture doesn't show the roofline well enough, but there is no way to relocate any of the gutters up top. I'm starting to re-visit this issue because last week we had the hardest rain I've seen around here since the big Nashville flood in 2010. Luckily it didn't rain nearly as long as it did back then, but several areas around still sustained some amount of flooding. I happened to be working from home that day and my office is in the basement. The front half of our house is a crawlspace and the back half is a walkout basement. When the house was built right at 2 years ago the builder actually had a local foundation/waterproofing company install one of those in-slab drainage systems for the basement. There is a sump pump in a closet behind the bathroom in the basement. I've always assumed that the sump was just there to run the plumbing for that bathroom. However, for the first time ever during a rainstorm I heard the sump pump start kicking in. At one point it was running every ten minutes. That must mean that the in-slab drainage system also feeds into that sump. I figured that was against codes.
In any case, after the rain stopped I went into the crawl space, which is pretty tall and easy to walk around in. There was actually still a puddle of water against the foundation wall to the finished basement area. Evidently, a lot of water had been seeping either through or under the foundation. I went all around the crawl space and lifting the plastic up I could see that the soil everywhere was saturated.
Best I can tell, my basement floor remained dry. However, I've got to deal with the amount of moisture coming into the crawl space. I have a plan to attack the outside drainage first. I know that the interior drainage systems where you trench all around the foundation in the crawl space are popular, but to me it seems like you should work on the outside first in order to keep as much moisture out in the first place. I've been told that because my lot slopes front to back I will ALWAYS have a bit of moisture in the soil under the house just because of normal moisture movement through the topsoil layer and even an interior trench drain can't be dug deep enough to capture all of it. I'll upload more pics soon and outline my plan, which I'm interested to get feedback on.
