I am buying a 1925 farmhouse. It is 3 br, 1 bath. However, the 2nd floor of the house most certainly was an attic. The ceilings are way too low for those to even be considered bedrooms, or anything other than storage, really. The bedrooms are a good enough size , maybe 10x12 (the master is downstairs) but with the roof slope there is no way you could fit anything other than a bed in the rooms, and you would not be able to move out of the center of the room. (Sorry, I do not know the actual slope of the roof, or roof pitch or w/e it's called) Anyway, back to the question....does anyone know a round about estimate for raising a roof? The total house is 2,245 sq. feet....there are 3 rooms upstairs (10x12) plus a tiny area that connects the two bedrooms at the top of the stairs. I would like to raise it maybe 4 feet (we're getting ch&a, and I heard they have to drop the roof for duct work). Btw- we are purchasing this house for $25,000 as a foreclosure. So it's not like we're paying tons of money for this old house, then spending $50,000 or more remodeling (we have other plans)...and that is really the only thing wrong with the house, other than asthetics. Anybody know anything??
