Barns commonly have gambrel roofs, so these roofs are also known as barn roofs. The trusses on the interior have wide-open spacing, allowing for lofts and storage.
This is considered a cross-gambrel roof, as the gambrel faces are perpendicular to one another.
Notice how spacious the interior of a gambrel roof can be. It's cavernous with the addition of the dormers.
A gambrel roof can have many appearances other than just the rustic barn look, as seen in this classical facade.Browse more photos of gambrel roofs
