Extra exterior wall support required for dormers? - I assume this is a balloon frame house. Was there any additional support required to keep the exterior walls in line after moving the joists for the dormer? The dormers must have added substantial usable space.

Difficult question to answer, but the simple answer is it was not balloon framed and the rafters do most of the structural gymnastics for the dormers to work.

Glad you like it. Actually it is a wood enclosure, with clearance for the stove pipe and boiler exhaust.

The width of the gable end in the foreground of this image is twenty two feet six inches. You do not see the bump-out on the other side which is twenty one feet six inches wide and fourteen feet six inches deep.

Are there any gutters? Are they concealed or do they not have any? - Where are the gutterings? Are they concealed or do they not have any, I have a similar roof line and am struggling with where to put the down spouts. I do not want to spoil the line of the house.

This roof does not have gutters. A smartly planted drip edge deals with water runoff in the non winter months, and during the winter the deeper overhangs push the snow far enough away to protect the building. Copper gutters might be appropriate here if they are hung correctly.

Thank you for that, I did wonder, its not something you would see in england, at least not where I live. Unfortunately, I have steps running down both sides of my house, with no room for the garden area. I have talked to a builder friend and come up with a solution to my problem.

It is about 15' - 6" wide by 3' - 0" wide. However, the design is a custom design and our policy has been to not release drawing details to protect both the clients privacy and our hard work.
Hope that helps!
