Dutch Gable End Houses
Favorite thing: The wonderful gable end canal houses, that seem to go on and on, nearly never ending. They are so beautiful, both large and small. On a bright sunny morning it's an ever-lasting memory
Fondest memory: When ever you see a gable end house, anywhere, you will always think of Amsterdam
Favorite thing: The clock-gable dates back to 1660-1790. The clock-gable is based on the neck-gable, the boards are made from bricks too and the 90 degrees corners disappeared. The top is looking like a bell.
Fondest memory: You spot lots of different gables.
Some names of the gables are: stair gable, clock gable, neck gable and spout gable.

Favorite thing: The step gable was favored by the Dutch Renaissance architects from 1580 to 1660. As its name implies, this design featured a series of steps culminating at the top.
