The two dormers on my house were built on my roof for decoration only. I took a sawzall and opened the interior so I now have daylight into my attic. Seems you may need to do the same?

I have to agree with most of the other posters.
We used to use an electric chain saw instead of a saws all on this one to make a faster cut through the sheathing, both will work, just ones faster.
Just make the hole toward the center of the gable so you do not run into the roofing.
Not going to hurt a thing making the hole to big as long as you do not cut into the rafters.
