Princeton Dormer Addition: Day 1

This week A&E began a major dormer addition in Princeton.  We'll show you our progress on Day One as we removed the area for the new dormer, installed a structural roof beam, installed walls and rafters and then cleaned the area and tarped the open roof space for the night.

We started the job early at 7 a.m.. as we cleaned the area and prepared for the removal of the exterior dorm area. 

Working quickly and with great attention to detail, A&E Construction removed the area for the new dormer addition in just 2 1/2 hours, finishing at 9:45.
Removal of Area for New Dormer 9:30 a.m.
Following the removal of the existing area, A&E worked with our dedicated subcontractors to install a structural ridge for the new dormer.
Structural Ridge Installed 11:45 a.m.

This large structural ridge was installed by 11:45, paving the way for starting work on installing walls and rafters.

The idea for this dormer addition was to create a  master bedroom on the second floor complete with a walk in closet, a second closet, and a beautiful window view from the back and the front of the house.

Our beginning wall and rafter work gives hints at the final look of this dormer addition.

The walls and rafters were completed by 3:00 and we had the open roof safely protected and tarped by 3:30.

A&E has extensive experience in creating dormer additions in various styles and for multiple purposes.

Whether you want to expand the existing floor plan, create a new room, or simply gain an interesting window embellishment to your home, we work hard to create a beautiful new dormer addition that looks as though its been there all along.

Check out A&E's design drawing of the dormer addition below to see the spacious master bedroom that this quick renovation will create.
