We have a small 10x10 shed dormer that I want to convert to a gable dormer. I don't care to change the structure too much, just the eaves, leaving the interior as is. I envision tearing off the shingles and tar paper, setting a ridge out to the eaves and then framing in the roof rafters, and sheeting it etc. Any advice from others who have done this? Am I crazy for doing this? I understand the load bearing on the outside walls and think that by leaving the current roof in place that should take care of the load bearing issue.
