Getting Ready to Install Gutters. Small Question

I am getting ready to install gutters on my house and found plenty of useful information.

The only question I have is I am working on placement of my downspouts and I could not find information on whether it was a good or bad idea to stick a downspout on the inside corner of the house. This corner is where the two roof lines meet and create a nice flow of water.

Or is it better to have the downspouts away from this corner and place on the other outside corners of the house.

The only reason why this is an issue is because the one outside corner is about 5 feet away while the other is more like 40 or 50 feet and from what i read If it is greater than 40 feet i should try and have two downspouts one at each end the but the one end is the inside corner.


I would post a picture, but I can't at the moment (I am a new member). i have searched the forums, but no avail.


Thanks for all the help and sorry for the long explanation/question.


Nate

In Case This is confusing to anyone. here is a diagram of the Roof line/Gutter area in Question.

Each "_" or "|" equals 1 foot.

Should I stick a downspout in the corner? or just one at each end?
