BUILDING CONSTRUCTION Filed NOV. 12. 1931 Fig.1.

(HAM/NEE) /VHE5/-/ GOODE/CH) ZKJMM V-M Patented Mar. 13, 1934 UNITD STATES PATENT OFFICE BUILDING CONSTRUCTION Application November 12, 1931, Serial No. 574,615

2 Claims.

This invention relates to buildings and particularly to the roofs thereof, one of the objects being to provide an improved drainage arrangement for buildings having a number of parallel gable roofs arranged side by side.

Having reference to the accompanying drawing which shows one form of the invention:

Figure 1 is a top plan.

Figures 2 and 3 are cross-sections, respectively, on the lines 11-11 and III-III of Figure 1.

In detail, the adjacent sections 1 and 2 of two gable roofs are downwardly inclined towards each other and have a central high portion 3, the respective side edges in each instance declining from this portion to their ends. By arranging a down spout 4 of the conventional pattern at the lowermost points of these edges, which will be at each end between the respective roof sections, adequate drainage will result without the need of the present expensive drainage systems of guttering laid longitudinally between the roof sections.

In other words, the two plane sections 1 and 2 are broken by additional triangular planes 5 and 6, introduced between the central high portion 3 and the last purlin on each side adjacent this portion, and down spout 4 collects the drainings. Widening of this spouts mouth will increase its capacity.

A preferable method of construction consists in laterally laying boards on the roof and partially cutting these at points where the inclination is desired. This partial cutting imparts a certain flexibility to the boards which will permit their being bent downwardly so that their edges join at the junction of the respective sections. By filling the cracks resulting from this cutting and bending, and laying roofing material over all, a smooth homogeneous surface is presented which should last a long time.

If the roof sections are made from steel they may be bent where they go over the first purlin, or, alternatively, be cut and pieced together at these points.

While one specific embodiment of the invention has been shown and described in accordance with the patent statutes, it is to be understood that it is not desired to limit the invention exactly thereto, except as defined in the appended claims.

I claim:

1. A building construction including substantially parallel gable roofs having adjacent plane sections declining towards a common line and constructed and arranged to have additional triangular plane sections which centrally decline away from a central portion of said line to the outermost limits thereof.

2. The method of altering a roof constructed of boards arranged to form adjacent sections declining towards a common line, by cutting the boards partially through along lines diverging from a central portion of said common line towards its outermost limits, bending the cut boards downwardly to form triangular plane sections which decline towards the outer limits of the common line and finally covering cracks resulting from this cutting and bending.
