Hip Roof Inspiration Pictures

vtjonDecember 17, 2012

I am working with a designer to find plans for my lot but I need some inspiration pictures to show her.

After much back and forth, I've determined that my wife prefers hip roofs and really dislikes gables and dormers. I have been unable to find any good examples of what we're after on Houzz or other places.

I am looking for either just exterior pictures or full plans from a plan site. Here are some specifics:

- Around 3000-3200 sq ft
- No two story entries or great rooms
- Plan to do a combination of stone and siding
- On a wooded lot - We've seen some interesting all-brick colonials with a hip roof but do not feel they would look very good on our wooded lot (subdivision but all lots are around 5 acres and you can only clear trees within 75 ft of the home site)
- Prefer side-load garage but negogiable

Use Google images and search for "Frank Lloyd Wright houses", and page through the photos for his hipped roof designs.

House is about 2150 square feet. Not as big as your house.
