The horizontal valley between the two rear gables - Hi, what a great design. I was wondering how you handled the drainage, snow load and roof leakage issues (ice dam) associated with a horizontal double valley in a Northern Climate? That is the design we covet for a ground floor living room addition to the back of our Connecticut colonial. It would essentially be a parallel structure equal to our existing garage - sharing a center wall with the two gables meeting in the center. It would look like a single story version of your design. But we've been told to steer clear of the horizontal valley designs in a snowy climate. Thanks

This project is about 10 years old with no leaks, etc. It's really just a matter of doing some good design detailing and quality craftsmanship. There's a section between each gable that is sloped from the ridge height to the gutter head that takes away all of the runoff. Ice and snow can be an issue so proper flashing and the installation of ice and water shield are a must. Good luck with the project.

I absolutely love this design. Love the sun-room and the gable vent accents.

I seem to have lost that info. It was a Ben Moore gray is all I can remember.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rather than having one large gable roof that would have peaked above the existing, the addition roof is broken down into smaller and lower pieces.
