Raise the Roof: Part Two

Click here if you missed Raise the Roof: Part One.

The next type of roof we’re going to look at is the gambrel roof.  Also known as a barn roof.  I guess you could say it’s a little bit of a country style.  But country is not always a bad thing – it can be classy too :)  It is also very popular in the Hamptons, which is anything but country.

Raise the Roof: Part One

What do y’all think of these two part posts that I’ve been doing lately?  It definitely makes it easier for me to talk about two different categories of one subject (last week it was the skirt).

Ever since I took a trip to Paris (almost four years ago) I have loved/appreciated French architecture and furniture more than any other style.  A trademark of French architecture is the mansard roof.  I love it.  What do y’all think?  When I build my dream house (any day now) I will definitely consider a mansard roof to make me feel like I’m in pretty Paris all the time :)

Tin Roof

I love a tin roof.   Just like a lot of other things that I blog about, a tin roof gives a house an industrial look.  My parents new cabin has a tin roof.  When its raining, I can sleep forever under a tin roof.

Even Summerfield has a tin roof! :)

Now who can tell me which one of these is the Summerfield house?
