Dormer addition on a traditional style home for reference
Add porch, dormer
There are many styles of dormer windows, but they are classified as windows set into, or projecting from, a pitched roof. Dormers can help convert an attic or loft into a living space by adding natural light and extra head room. See all the different kinds of dormers in this gallery form This Old House.
