Default Hip Roof shape or other

Doing a wind mitigation on this old 1942 home. Most of the roof is hip on the front porch area one side is hip while the other side is like a gable end. Would this be other or hip. Here some photos.

Pic 3 looks like an unenclosed porch with the roof attached to the wall...don't count that one. Pic 2 has gable sections on the end walls. Now you have to decide on total roof perimeter...upper and lower, or just lower, or just upper...inquiring minds want to know.

Well just letting you guys know it came with 7% non-hip other. this type of roof shape is the stuff that gets me really confused when it comes to a wind mitigation, but once you do a couple of them to start getting better at them.

Only if it is not enclosed (screened or open), and it's not part of the same roof that is over a portion of enclosed space.

That's right. One of your bump out rooms is enclosed...those gable ends count as non-hip.
