Hi Brian, Great photos again. This old farmhouse has what we call a hip roof today. Not very common at least in S. Ga. Took lots of extra labor. Also, noticed fairly wide overhang of roof. Also not common then but is now. Great protection for a home from rain or shine. Also kept much cooler in pre-AC days. Thanks for a glimpse at other places I probably will never see. Thanks.
