Shed Plus Gables

Instead of extending a shed-type dormer across most of a roof, you can also take the approach shown here: Locate gable dormers on the ends, and connect them with a recessed shed dormer. Besides resulting in an interesting look that isn't too massive, this design allows you to create cubbyhole-type spaces inside the gable ends. A writing desk or a window seat would fit nicely.
