Dormers Bring Space and Light into Four Homes

new-curve-2

This stunning renovation exhibits the two major benefits that dormers contribute to a home’s interior: space and light. Specifically, the steep, 12-pitch roof limited livable floor space in the bedroom and bathroom, each in opposite gable ends of the upstairs. By installing a doghouse dormer in each room, the heightened ceiling increased the amount of usable floor space without actually creating more square footage. In the bathroom, this meant space for a new full shower, tub and double vanity. Plus, the windows in the dormers let more natural light into both rooms, which before only had a single window on the gable wall. To tie the two doghouse dormers together aesthetically from the exterior, the architect added a shed dormer to the foyer. The addition opened the front entrance into a grand entryway, complete with a vaulted ceiling and huge window for letting natural light pour in.
