Video: Home with Katie: Design tips -- Adding a shed dormer

Here's a little video ditty I recorded (with my husband's able assistance) on a lark a couple of weekends ago. It captures some footage of the Edgartown Dormer Renovation in my mother-in-law's simplified, Gothic-Revival style home on Martha's Vineyard. You can also find the Edgartown Dormer Renovation featured, in sketch form, in a Drawing Board column I did for Fine Homebuilding several years ago. The dormer got some ink in The Boston Globe in January, 2011, as well.

Video design tips for upper-level oriels

If you've seen the Drawing Board column I wrote for the September 2011 issue of Fine Homebuilding magazine ("Taking oriels to a new level", Issue #221), you might want to check out this video, too. I created it as a companion piece to my column about upper-level oriels. (An oriel is a window bay without a foundation.) If you haven't seen my Fine Homebuilding column yet, it's on newsstands now, and here's a link to a PDF version of it. Reprinted with permission copyright 2011, The Taunton Press, Inc. You can also find this video in the "Magazine Extras" section of the Fine Homebuilding website here.
