Dormers without cresting

Dormers without cresting
An exterior view of the Sullivan-Kinney House facing South Garfield Street in 1974. Notice the windows protruding outside the roof, called dormers, below the now-removed cresting. These dormers are topped with a triangular element called a pediment, including brackets, small, ornamental columns, beside the windows. Inclusion of these architectural elements gives the Sullivan-Kinney House a more refined and elegant appearance, chiefly by distracting from the property’s small size. | Source:
