Roof Inspiration - Backyard Pizza Oven - January 2024

Yesterday, I posted a photo of the 'drywell exploration' that I conducted to find the edges and depth of the drywell to discover if it would serve as a suitable subsurface for my diy backyard wood-fired pizza oven.   I've also recently posted about some brickwork inspiration here.   

When thinking about the oven, the facade is a big part of the 'looks', but so too is the roofline.  I recently came across this Tiktok from RustyVanRanch - embedded below - that shows a barn roof that has an extended peak out front at the top of the gable:

Here's a screenshot of the roof in question:

A little digging revealed that those are called "Hay Hoods".  Some call them "Crow's Beaks".  It serves a purpose of providing a little bit more shelter over the hay loft door.  For my pizza oven, there's appeal in a little bit of protection WITHOUT creating a huge, overhead roof.  

Filing this away for when the roof-construction decision-making occurs.
