Admitted to the Union in the year 1796, Tennessee is the 16th state of the United States. It is home to roughly 6,916,897 people, and ranks as the 36th largest state, occupying an area of 109,247 km2. Tennessee largely enjoys a humid subtropical climate, with milder, cooler winters and hot summers. The only exception to this rule is the more elevated areas in the Appalachians, which have a humid continental climate (with freezing cold winters and hot summers), or mountain temperate climate (where both summers and winters are moderately hot and cold respectively). The weather situation in this state is largely dictated by the Gulf of Mexico, as the winds coming from the south are largely responsible for rainfall in the state. Average precipitation in the state lies at 50cm annually, while the level of snowfall ranges from as high as 80 inches in the western part to 5 cm in eastern part.
Withstanding the weather and especially hurricanes and tornadoes are the top priority in Tennessee, which makes it barely surprising that hip roofs are the most popular. In fact, several types of hip roofs are popular here - which includes regular hip roofs (having four triangle-shaped faces where two sides are longer), cross-hip roofs (which are used for L-shaped buildings), and half-hip roofs (which are a mix of hip and gable roof types). Aside from hip roofs, gable roofs are common and also come in three distinct varieties - front (where the gable faces the street and has the main entrance under it), side (where the main door sits under the gutter and not the gable), and cross (which have more than one gable roofs which stand perpendicular to one another).
