I haven't done a post on the hip roof
since the one I did over a year ago:
The beautiful building above is from a photo
I originally used in my post, Glen Burnie Gardens,
which are in Winchester, Virginia.
The shed above is in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
This is a roof I built in Santa Fe and featured in the post:
A hip roof with the vents at each end of the ridge,
as above, is a dutch hip.
And next to it is our former home also shown in the post:
You can see how much I love the hip roof.
The abandoned Bella Hotel is in Lake Valley, New Mexico,
which I profiled in the post:
This home was in my post: Old Adobes In Patagonia, Arizona.
A home in Washington state...
...and the framing underneath.
More hip roof framing in Patzcuaro, Michoacan, Mexico.
These last photos are all from Mexico.
Above is a clay tile roof in San Carlos, Sonora.
The hip roof protects all sides of a building from rain, wind and the hot sun
as there are no tall gable ends.
It is a bit odd for us to see a concrete roof
but it not out of the norm in Mexico.
You can see more of this building in San Carlos, Sonora
in the post: The Formed Roof.
I would expect this roof to be covered by clay tiles.
