Team Work Makes the Dream Work!

Jun 29, 2023

When clients come to us and want to upfit an attic space to maximize the square footage of their home, we automatically know that in 90% of the cases, this will entail some type of dormer. Let’s take a minute to explain what a dormer is.

Dormer: noun (dor·​mer) A dormer is a roofed structure, often containing a window, that projects vertically beyond the plane of a pitched roof. A dormer window is a form of roof window. Dormers are commonly used to increase the usable space in a loft and to create window openings in a roof plane.

By pushing a dormer out of an attic space, we can increase the headroom and the usable floor space in the area. And the only way to build a dormer is to cut a hole in the roof where there was none. That’s where our 30+ years of residential construction design/build experience comes into play.

It takes real TEAMWORK to make a DREAM work when cutting a massive hole in a client’s roof! Our incredible team of framers was able to do the demo and the build all in one day on this 36-foot shed dormer to create an enormous amount of living space in this existing attic. We started at 9 am and were dried-in in 9 hours, just minutes before a torrential downpour. We are fortunate to have clients to trust us with a project like this! Stay tuned for more photos as this project is in progress. Call us when you need an established team of professionals to handle your next home project.
