I'm thinking this must be a custom home that someone is building, rather than a spec home, because I can't imagine a spec builder putting this kind of roof on. For one thing, it's very labor-intensive and expensive, and for another it just doesn't go. This kind of roof belongs on an English cottage-style home. The half-timbers kind of lean that way, too, but the overall effect is just wrong.
I don't even know what this style of shingle is called. There must be a term for it. Imitation thatch? Anyone know?
