Click on this link to learn more about roof designs, architecture and home building. These are what I believe to be the three most popular roof designs for residential home building and design. I believe the gable roof is the most common and easiest to assemble, then would come a simple hip roof and of course a combination hip and gable roof. Make sure you visit our website for more tips and ideas, especially if you’re planning on building a new house in the future.
