Shed dormers

A shed dormer (visible behind the peaked roof on the house shown here) has a roof that slopes in only one direction, toward the front. Many freestanding sheds have roofs that look similar, hence the name of this style of dormer. Dormers in this style are characteristic of Dutch Colonial, Craftsman and Colonial Revival houses.
