Hooked on Houses
When two or more rooflines intersect, the result is called a cross gable. This mock Tudor cottage in Oakland, California, illustrates how a cross-gable roof can create a multidimensional facade that hints at a more interesting interior layout than a single-ridge roof would. The cost of a cross-gable roof is higher, due to the relative complexity of joining the two rooflines.
