In the tucked-away spaces of a house, a dormer can add extra light and space—and even a place to cozy up and read. Made popular in the 17th century when famous French architect Francois Mansart tried to increase living space in Paris’ close quarters, a dormer can provide you room and character.
Whether you go with gabled or hipped roof style, a contractor can help you know what to choose and which materials to use. Grab a cup of coffee and browse through our photo gallery with pencil in hand for inspiration to get started.
