What is this roof feature called?


I've heard it called a jerkinhead, a dutch hip, and a truncated hip. Not sure if any or all are the correct name.

A Dutch hip is the opposite of this. It has a small projection rather than being clipped.

Yeah - a "Dutch Hip" looks cool too!
Around here: we call it a "Returned Hip" - it's just "nomenclature".
I prefer a "Dutch Hip" (as "Polecat" refers to) vs. a "Clipped Hip" -
They both add, a little, "Something" to a roof -
Who knew roofers and framers could be "Craftsmen" (Craftspeople)!!!

This source says the OP roof is a "Jerkinhead" style Roof...

And I agree with Kwik and the source confirms that Kwik's pic is a Dutch Hip...

Well you know what they say about price, location location. What would you charge???

I will say this, thatís a pretty cool looking roof. Although the lack of gutters would concern me.

I agree KFR it is cool looking.,Gutters would be my 1st quirk.Another would be.,.,Ice.,It seems with a large amount of ice (Multiple seasons) when using arch's it would start pulling them apart.

The cost.,.,I would probably lose alot of bids.,.,

I think a few Nomes peaking out of the bushes would be an attractive touch.

I think the second one is SCREAMING with personality. Iím not sure what itís saying but itís talking to me.

That had to be a fun roof to cut Lone, I donít see any trusses there.
