Gabled Dormers Put Homes

With a concentrated summit on top and a roof which slopes downward on each side, a gabled dormer creates usable space in the roof of a house, adding headroom, ceilings and architectural attraction. Built in a variety of sizes, gabled dormers can accommodate a single window and behave as an architectural punctuation mark or feature three windows within an whole second-story addition.
