Re: What Is This Type Of Eave Called (see Picture)


I've built a few but really don't know the correct term, but when I say Pigeon walk most around here know what I'm talking about.

An eye brow I thought was a curved dormer over a round or oval window. Guess it all depends on where you come from. In Alabama they call a winter hat a "toboggan", up north it's a wooden sled. One of those things!

Same here for what an "eyebrow" is.

"bulkhead" is another one of them dual meaning terms. We have a bulkhead that goes to our cellar, but many in the architectural field call a bulkhead a ceiling treatment.

Under an architectural site with architectural terms, I got this:

CLASSIC AND GREEK REVIVAL c. 1830s-1860s

"decorative classical features include dentils, return eaves, pilasters, flat or pedimented hoods over windows"

On Architect's Forum/Discussion Group, same term:

Re: Gable End Eave Return
If I am understanding you correctly I believe this is often called a "pork chop" you may do a search here and at AUGI with this term. If this is indeed what you are talking about AUGI members have access to AU 2005 materials, via AUGI, and there is a great how-to on this exact item.

Cheers - Chris

Re: What Is This Type Of Eave Called (see Picture)


A pork chop is a flat return, usually on the same plane as the fascia, - - and nothing else, - - I'm sure there are those that mistakenly think otherwise.

The correct technical term in question is a cornice return, - - it's not 'wrong' to call it an eave return, - - but it's best to call it the technically correct name.

I hear that once in a
blue moon, in these parts
that is a bird box,
after all it is boxed in.
Though pork chop has a
nice visual to it.

They are wrong in alabama, a winter hat is a toque, and a toboggan is indeed a wooden sled. Go anywhere else in the world and you will see that they call it a tobboggan aswell. Just had to get my 2 canadian pennies in there.

Pork chop is a flat fascia return, - - on a gable wall with no overhang.

Birdbox is a three-dimensional fascia return, - - on a gable wall with an overhang.

Cornice return (or eave return, as some are calling it) is a return that duplicates all the components of the roofing design.

Aha! I have done that like.....
never.

This is common as dirt
around here, and on rare
occasions I've heard
"foreigners" call them
porkchops.

I'm with you on the
"cornice return."
That's settled!
