I'm preparing to redo the front facade of our house. My plan is to do a Gable roof to cover the patio. Here's a rough sketch (columns not shown on purpose):
To save time/money, I'm considering not having the ridge of this new gable roof connect all the way back to the existing roof. The idea being that the patio's roof is just a facade anyways. Here is the concept:
Aesthetically, I know that this is not ideal. However, that perspective of the house (the left side, as viewed from the street) is hidden by trees.
I'm wondering if this method would be a good idea, or something that has inherit problems.
Thanks for your help!
