Additions, Dormers and Extensions

Harbor Hills Construction, INC. offers many projects from start to finish as well as shells or just particular phases of home improvement. Below are the most common forms of residential remodeling:

Dormer: A dormer is a structural element of a building that protrudes from the plane of a sloping roof surface. Dormers are used, either in original construction or as later additions, to create usable space in the roof of a building by adding headroom and usually also by enabling addition of windows.

The main types of dormer are:

  • Gable fronted dormer: the front of the dormer rises to a point at the ridge of the dormer roof. Also known as a dog-house dormer.
  • Hipped roof dormer: the roof slopes back from front of structure to a point farther back.

Extension: An Extension is a structural element of a building that is added on to the ground level by basement, slab or crawl space. Extensions are also known as additions.

Mother/Daughter: A Mother/Daughter is the most common term for an apartment. Most people add Mother/Daughters to accommodate a family member who wishes to live with them without having to give up their own space.  Many Mother daughters are separated by a single interior door and usually offer their own entrance, kitchen, bath, etc.

Accessory apartment: An accessory apartment is an apartment added on to an existing one family dwelling for the purpose of additional income.

Shell: A shell is either a dormer, extension or mother daughter that is “weather tight” Weather tight mean that there is a foundation, framing, siding, roofing, exterior windows and doors.
