We are building an addition which includes a large gable dormer, one of three rear facing gables on the back facade of the house. The other two gables are 10 pitch. The plans showed this gable to be 10 pitch but the carpenter built it as an 8. Will this be noticeable? Its a fairly large house, the gable in question is on the end. I noticed it, but it doesn't jump out at most people I've asked. Is matching gable pitch a strict design principle? I'm trying to decide if I should make a big deal out of this and make the carpenter undo alot of work and put our project completely off schedule or if it is something architecturally "acceptable" that I can let slide.
