Hip garages are four sided, as opposed to the two-sided gable roof and are one of the most common type of garage for a variety of reasons.
A hip garage may seem like the most basic and simple option, but with the right touches, it can be an extremely attractive addition to your home and property while still being affordable and functional.
Advantages of hip garages include:
- Strong and cost-effective
- Similar to a gable garage, 4 steep slopes allow rain and snow to run off
- Easy to incorporate into an existing structure
