A basic hip roof is a sturdy construction in which the roof slopes down an all four sides, creating a steep pitch; typically there are two longer sides and two shorter sides. A Dutch hip roof adds a gable element on the shorter sides, and a bonnet roof is a hip roof with the addition of a lower pitched eave along the outer perimeter. For one more variation, the pyramid roof is a hip roof atop a square-shaped building; all four sides of the roof are exactly the same shape and size and come to a point at the top.
