Double Gable Cottage

Double Gable Cottage



Still found throughout Queensland and rural northern New South Wales, these worker’s cottages developed from the need to accommodate a growing family. Single gabled homes provided only one or two rooms. The simplest way to provide more space was to build two adjoining houses or to build on to an existing house with an identical extension. This created the double gable or ‘M’ shaped roof profile.
