Auto Dormers and Auto Floating Dormers


Recommended Posts

When you need the unique properties of one or the other.

 

If you understand the differences, then you should also understand which one to choose.

 

I know that sounds like a smart-a answer ...

I personally use auto-dormers for clerestory light dormers and false dormers.  When I have to have a "real" framed dormer for living space I model by hand.  There are always exceptions to this general rule of thumb, but that is how I view it.

Is there a certain circumstance where an auto dormer is preferred over an auto floating dormer and/or visa versa?

 Maybe an over-simplification, but in general, use a floating dormer when it will "sit" on the roof instead of on walls underneath the roofline.
