Shed Dormer on Bungalow?


Hi,
I'm looking at purchasing a 1920 bungalow. Currently, there are only 2 bds (plus a small office) on the 2nd floor.

Due to the roof slope (which seems minimal), is it possible (and visually acceptable) to put a shed dormer on the rear to maximize the 2nd floor footprint?

If so, is $20-$30k a decent rough estimate for framing and rough interior of the shed? (Ideally, I'd replace existing roof & add dormer at same time). Just trying to get a pricing range so as to structure my offer accordingly

Pics are attached. Any help is certainly appreciated!

Regards, Jen

Beautiful home, its hard to say from pictures, We have built dormers on that style home before,a shed roof is about the only type that would blend in with the style for that price. keep the side eve's on the existing roof, and add them to the new shed roof also, it should all blend in. By the way the inside is beautiful, This is just my 2cents. Good Luck Bob
