This house features two shed dormers, one on top of the other. Shed dormers are easy to build from scratch, but clever builders can speed the process when a dormer is being added to an existing house. Leaving the existing roofing intact, they cut rafters where the dormer will be. Then they tilt and lift that section of roof and prop it up. Presto! Once they build walls underneath, the dormer is basically done.
