The normal do-what-the-manufacturer-says installation pictures always seem
to assume that the direction of the guys are perpendicular to the tower face
opposite leg to which the guy is attached. I am looking at an installation
with wall mount+ guys. But if I install guys in the conventional way, I face
the possibility that one of the guys will interfere with a corner of the
house. Would it be possible (safe?) if the guy anchor points were rotated 15
deg from the 'normal'. All three guy points would be rotated, so 120 deg
separation would be maintained, but would the rotated guy directions place
any additional torque on the tower?
