Hip

Hip roofs slope back from all four sides. If that's all there is to the roof, the roof winds up looking interesting and yet it is still free of complications, such as valleys where leaves collect. Hip roofs can also be linked up to fit L-shaped buildings or combined with gabled roofs, such as on this house.
