Today’s featured house design is a gorgeous elevated bungalow with five bedrooms. This design is perfected by its roof style which complements the bulk of the house, a hip and valley roof! This article says that hip and valley roofs have a total of four sloping surfaces, with two joined on a common ridge, and the other two on either end of the central ridge. This design is very similar to the trapezoid structure of gable roofs, with the addition of the two triangular hip ends the only real distinguishing factor.
A hip and valley roof offers many advantages for a house. It is stable and if it is built properly with strong trusses, it is really sturdy and durable. The only disadvantage is that it is more expensive than any other style of roofing. However, if you’re willing to invest towards durability, constructing this roof style for your house is the best choice.
An elevated house is flood-proof especially if its elevation is good enough like in this house which has 6 steps elevation. If one step is 20 centimeters, the standard height of a step, then its elevation would be 120 centimeters or 1.2 meters.
The elevation does not only offer protection from flooding but also adds appeal to the house. The 6-step stairs lead to the open porch and the main door. The glass windows and glass door also beautify the facade. Glass keeps the interior bright and allows natural lighting.
