The attic of a home doesn't have to be simply an insulated barrier against the elements; it can be used to provide additional living or storage space. For houses that cannot be built out, building up is the only practical alternative and skylights can enhance the charm of a room. Attics, Dormers, and Skylights lays out a variety of addition solutions, including dormer projects, attic remodeling, second-story additions, skylights, and more. Each project is accompanied by easy-to-understand instructions and extensive color photos and illustrations.
