Build Day 9 (5/6/12)

Today we built the two dormers that sit on both sides in the middle of the house.  I’m glad we went with this design to break up the roof line a bit and add more head room and storage on the inside.  These were actually pretty easy to make…they’re essentially mini walls.  The plans call for two windows in each dormer, but I removed one in order to gain some wall space inside.  This will make more sense once we get the roof on and I can have pictures of this section all plywooded in.

We ended up building each dormer inside the wee house since the floor is clear and it’s a decent amount of space to work.  Once one was built and installed up top, we built the other one in about 1/2 the time!  Although the framing was pretty sturdy, we get strong winds up here on the mountain.  The 2×4 you see going from one side to the other is just a temporary brace to keep the dormers from blowing off.  Next up: roof framing 🙂
