Since you have the peak of your house, would an inverted V dipole
fit? You could put up a large pole with wire headed down towards
the ends of your house. (Hope that your trig is up to snuff).

Anyway, the inverted-V is efficient and the effective height of
the antenna is the same as the height of the highest point.
