Flared Gable

This is basically a gabled dormer, but the dormer roof flares out in the same way that the main roof on a house often flares out to accommodate a porch or an addition. On the dormer, the flared roof helps shade the windows, a boon when dormers face south or west in regions where summers are hot. Intricate corbels support the overhang of the roof.
