Learn about our unique true gambrel room structure on Gracefield Hall. Here is a stylized diagram of our roof structure. Some guests have inquired about how the roof was constructed. Rob Carter of Southern Traditions was able to have the roof designed so it could be a true colonial gambrel roof, with a knee wall and sloping interior wall on the second floor, rather than a fake
roof as used on a modern house where the interior wall is vertical and the roof is “kicked” out beyond the wall to form the steeper lower part of the roof.
