Steep Multi-Gabled Roof Lines
Tudor’s steeply pitched roofs (thought to have evolved from earlier centuries’ thatched roofs) are well suited to regions such as England that endure lots of rain and snow. That’s why so many Tudor homes in this country show up in the Midwest, Northwest, and along the East Coast, although other regions certainly boast their fair share. Tudor roofs typically include side gables and dormer windows that let in natural light. And they’re often graced with massive brick or stone chimneys that are capped with elaborate chimney pots.
