Dormer windows


Dormers are a type of construction (structure) that projects outward from a sloped roof. It's your choice of what kind of window(s) you wish to install in such a structural element.
Generally, the window is a standard designed double hung window, in terms of "window type".

Dormer windows


As far as framing a dormer goes...I would not suggest that a novice DIYer attempt to perform such a project without some sort of onsite experienced supervision. This involves structural framing and structural support during the work process. You will need to obtain a building permit which will require a diagram showing how the dormer(s) will be structurally built.

Needless to say, here are examples of Dormer "framing". These are examples of two kinds of dormers, shed-dormer and gable-roof dormer.
