Build This Appealing Dormer To Add Space and Improve Curb Appeal
There are many dormer options to consider for your project. First we have to assess what your needs are. Believe it or not, but some people build dormers just for looks, those are refereed to as “false dormers”. A common dormer option for cape cod styled homes is to put to dormers on the front and a shed dormer on the back that stretches the full length of the house in the rear.
This package is designed to give your home’s second or third floor more space and flexibility. Check out a full shed dormer project built onto a single story ranch; that dormer project gave Dave and his wife a lot more living space, which was a huge benefit for their growing family. A dormer addition such as this does not require and heating or cooling work to be done; therefore, keeping the cost low for this type of house extension project.
Expert Tip: Adding a front dormer will certainly give your home great curb appeal, but it will also allow more light into your home, and increase the air circulation on the second or third floor.
