Hi, I have an architectural question on the name of something that I hope someone can answer, that is assuming it even has a name. Here it is: A 'living area' extending from the side of a roof is called a 'Dormer', this I know: Now for my question; I am building an A-frame coop which has something like this, but with two significant differences; one, it it situated at the bottom of the frame, at floor level and two, rather than being a 'small' protrusion, it extends the full length of the structure, from front to back: Now on a 'true' A-frame the roofing rafters extend all the way to the foundation, becoming the frame of the house, so even though the 'dormer' is at ground level, technically it still protrudes from the 'roof'. So my question is, would it still be considered a dormer? Or does such a feature have some other name (if so, what would it be called)? I have gone through every image of A-frames that Google 'can' come up with, but none of them show anything like this (other than patios) and I know that in the eons of human architecture there is no possible way that I could be the first to come up with the idea! So someone, sometime in history must have given it a name.
