Shed Dormer Kit
Adding a shed roof dormer or two to your Vermont Cabin, Two Bay Garage or Sugar Shack pre-cut kit is a great way to bring in extra light when you order windows to add-on to this kit.
This sturdy DIY Shed Dormer includes everything you need to add a single slope shed dormer to your timber frame kit. These shed roof dormers can be ordered as an add on to the Vermont Cabin, Two Bay Garage or 20' wide Sugar Shacks. Hemlock wall and roof framing, shiplap pine siding, corrugated metal roof in Evergreen, and aluminum flashing are included. Assembly instructions and fastening hardware will be shipped with the kit.
Shed Dormers create an interesting architectural detail from the exterior and extra vertical space inside. Lofts can be dark with low ceilings. Adding a dormer can dramatically change the atmosphere of your lofted space. Because shed dormers are wide they are ideal for creating the maximum usable space in the loft. Some customers will add one shed dormer on one side, two shed dormers, one on each side, or one shed dormer with dog house dormers on the other side.
The space beneath a shed roof dormer could be used in a variety of ways. Because the shed dormer provides so much space it is perfect for adding a large bedroom in the loft or it could be used as a yoga studio, office, bunk room, recreation room, playroom, workshop, or additional storage space. Adding windows to the DIY shed dormer will punch up the amount of natural light that streams in during the day.
