How to make dormer windows.
First you have to determine the right angel.
There is a very simple trick to do that. Use
a white sheet of paper and hold it against
the roof...determine how big you want to have
it and and fold it against the edge.
Your template is rady...this will be just
the right angle for the roof.
I used some thick cardboard to make the rest of the
template...it is up to you how you make it. I wanted
to have a front to fit the windows in. You can use only
your window as a front and glue the sides to it.
Hold the templates together with some tape and
now your right size dormer window is ready. You can
check if it will fit and make some adjustmant as necessary.
For the hole in the roof use the inside demensions of the
dormer (the one you gona use)....hope my explanation
will help Kathi????
