It would be sad to lose a great view, can you think something up ?

Anything's possible! (With enough money...)

I'm going to have a large rectangular window in the rake wall (the end wall) at the back of the loft. You can see the rough opening of it in the wide-angle picture. 

But, to keep some of that nice view out the front of the house, I think I'm going to add a dormer window -- you know, one of these puppies* -- to the front of the cabin. That gives me more room in the attic, more light, and more view.

Nice to see how things are progressing. I gather the last photo is not actually your cabin????

Wait, you'll add a dormer in the front where there's no loft? That's kind of different. Or is the loft on the side rather than the back? Or both? I'm so confused.

Ok, I see in the wide view the loft is in back with the upper rectangular window. A dormer window away from the loft would mean you are looking up through the window, which may provide light but no view. Mebbe you want two - one in the loft for space and view, and one in front for extra light?

Or maybe by front you mean the side facing downhill, 90 degrees from what looks to be the front entrance?

Do you find my obvious interest in the proceedings to be cute, Az? Suspect

Oh lordy, what I meant was that there is currently space for a window in the wall on the end of the cabin where the loft is: you can see the framing for it in some of the pictures.

In addition, I'm going to add a Dormer in the roof on the downhill side of the house in such a way that if I stand in the loft I can look directly out the dormer window and the dormer will be adding to the head-room in the loft. 

So, bird's eye view:

Oh goodness no, that's just a stock photo of some dormers.

So you were referring to the downhill side as the front. Sensible, especially if you stick a porch on that side.
