the gambrel

Early New England Homes provides Gambrel Home kits Kent CT, Warren CT.  The distinctive gambrel roof design is a variant of the European mansard shape. The steep symmetrical Gambrel roof resembles a barn and is sometimes referred to as the ‘Dutch Roof’. The design has beautiful proportions. The shallow angle upper roof and a steeper lower roof allow for more height in the attic space. When you want to build a home with a distinctive profile, you will just love sloped-roof Gambrels.

Early New England Homes is an eastern Connecticut company. Our beautiful post and beam homes are meticulously fashioned after 18th century New England houses that appear all over New England. Our home kits bring back the style and charm of Old New England architecture. ENEH specializes in building authentic Cape Cod, Saltbox, Gambrel and Colonial style homes. We work closely with local builders to recreate the layout and style of these exceptional houses. Each home is fully customized to fit each client’s needs.

What is unique about our homes is the Options Package. We have hand planed beadboard paneling and beaded wainscoting. Beaded window and door trim, pre-hung 4-panel doors, board & batten doors and a storm door option are available. Wide board flooring and baseboards are a perfect fit in these classic Cape Cod homes. Complete the effect with our fireplace mantels and hand-forged interior hardware.

The early colonists hewed the beams for their homes from forests that surrounded their property, and each home therefore had a unique character. Our early New England style homes reflect the charm and character of the area. To whet your appetite, why not take a look at our Gambrel Homes page.
