Is this acceptable? Opinions?

My thought exactly on the rain and even a gutter being feasible there......homeowner don't care about it but something is rubbing me wrong about it. It's not common.

 

I want the gables centered as shown so I guess it is what it is........

In the world of home building would this be frowned upon? A valley coming down directly to a corner? Not sure how I feel about this.

Generally, I'd move that major roof plan back at least 2'-0" (but only if it would work out with the rest of the house, ie the part we can't see to the left of your image)

Negative, but I sure wish I could slide it over. Builder said it's not a problem so I am going with that.

I've seen it done a lot, and done it myself. Not ideal but also not a big deal. Nothing wrong with it except heavy rain will spill over, but that happens at most valleys anyway.

Another option to achieve a similar result would be to bump that right gable 2'-0" further out towards the front instead.
