Roof type

What type of roof is this up top? It had the hatch up top. House built in 1880 or Jae Williams’ DOB :slight_smile:

As always thanks in advance.

cant tell from your pic…if it had a hatch did you open it and take a look? I would have walked the top and lower sections on this one! yes I carry a ladders that tall!

[FONT=Times New Roman]Thats what I thought, but the planes weren’t very steep. It was a pyramid hip type with a flat top? [/FONT]
