|KEY WORD : architecture / general terms|
|A drooping verge needed on buildings with gable style *kirizuma-zukuri 切妻造, or hip-and-gable style * irimoya-zukuri 入母屋造, roofs which have bargeboards *hafu 破風. The curve of the bargeboard and the pitch of the roof differs due to the construction of a hidden roof *noyane 野屋根. Thus, the drooping verge is made to close the gap between the upper surface of the bargeboard and the surface of the hidden roof.|
