L-Shaped Gable

Gabled roofs take many forms, including this L shape. When the floor plan calls for a T-shaped house, the roof is called "cross-gabled." If one of the sloping sides ends in a wall that's shorter than the wall on the other side, it's a "saltbox." There are also terms to distinguish gabled roofs that show their slanting side on the front ("side-gabled") from those where the pointed wall is prominent ("front-gabled").
