How hard is it to build a dormer on an existing metal roof?
We have an older two story post and beam home, we want to put a bathroom on the second floor , the roof has a steep A frame slant with a metal roof. There is no attic, the house is a complete open concept, on one side there is a skylight. building walls to enclose a bathroom area would be hard to do due to the slanted ceiling, however there are storage closets on both sides of the room under the slanted ceiling, we want to use some of the storage room as a bathroom by building a dormer out. How hard is that to do? My husband and I are very handy, we have renovated several houses, just never done a dormer. Are there any concerns about the metal roof that you don't have with a composite roof? What about the post and beam construction? Thanks
