GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
Spanish term or phrase:
techo a dos o más aguas
a roof with two or more slopes (Henry) / a gable or gambrel roof (Claudia)
Gambrel Roofs: A gambrel roof is similar to a gable roof, but it has two or more different slopes. This is the traditional "barn roof". Creo que gambrel roof está perfecto y si no, la otra opción es ésta, "a roof with two or more slopes". Gracias a todos.
