San Francisco Dutch Roofs

Yesterday Lani pointed out a house in our neighbourhood that has a Dutch roof. She said it reminded her of a barn. We both thought it was a rare roof style for SF.

But this evening as I walked home from Andronico's market I took these photos of several homes with Dutch roofs. They're more common in SF than we thought.

The name comes from German, or “Deutsch” settlers to Pennsylvania in the early 1600's. The style enjoyed a revival during the first three decades of the 20th century.
