Dormer Construction

Dormer construction has been around for a long time.

They can come in many sizes. They can significantly alter a look of a roof line and hence the entire building.

I built this one for a cottage a few years back. The owners used this space as a bedroom.

We needed to build this space in order to get enough room to actually make a bedroom.
