Good day from a newbie on this forum,
I am at the designing phase of a future home, and I'm looking for advice and opinions on dormer windows. I want to add a dormer to the second floor of the house, in the bonus room above the garage. I am debating what type of dormer to add: a shed dormer or a gabled dormer.
The house is one and a half stories, meaning the second floor is in the attic. It will be built in New-Bruswick where there is quite a bit of snow. I think both types would fit equally well in the design (craftman inspired). The main roof has a 10:12 pitch
I was wondering how the two types of dormers compare in terms of :
1) Framing complexity
2) Cost
3) Risk of leakage
4) Insulation and venting?
Thanks for any insights
