Fake dormer

volvo_85August 3, 2009

Hi everyonr, I am in the process of putting a new roof on my house and came across a picture in a magazine of a ranch style house that the owners put dormers on to give it a new look. It said in the article that the dormers were fake. I would love to give my 42 year old rancher a new look and was wondering if anyone had heard of this and how expensive it would be and how difficult. Thanks for any feedback. Volvo

You would need enough roof pitch for the dormer to look reasonable. If there is enough headroom, why not make real dormers?
