What Is This Called?


If you look at the plan in this link, you'll see above the garage, on the right side, a second gable roof piece. It's only supported on one end by a wall. The other end dies in the middle of the garage gable.

What is that small section of gable called, or the design called?

It's not quite a multiple gabled front, as the gable section does not correspond to a projecting room section.

I hope that makes sense.

Did you look at the second floor plan to see the bump out that the smaller gable rests on?

Are you talking about B in the image below?

Looks like a slight bump out to me.

Re: What Is This Called?


Yes, "B" in the picture is what I was referring to. I completely missed the bump out on the second floor, even after numerous looks.

I swear, I need to stop using this net book. It's handy, but you can't see pictures worth a chit. The picture that TxGenCon posted is bigger than the original on my computer.

Guess that answers my question on the framing detail for that.

Thanks, guys.

I just call it a zipper wall. I only side them, rarely build them.
