Fake dormer

Posted by volvo_85 (My Page) on

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

RE: Fake dormer

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