The Steep Gable Roof Cottage first appeared in Newfoundland in the 1400's. The name came from the 45-degree angle peak roof, creating a triangular shape at the ends of the houses called a gable. Wooden shingles were cut by hand. Practical and efficient, our Steep Gable Roof cottage is a blend of modern construction and an enduring one-and-a-half story design.
