12 pitch ?

Depends on what type of dormer you are talking about. If the dormer has a pitched roof, such as a "gable," it's framed with the same roof pitch as the original roof, so it blends in.


A "shed," dormer on the other hand is usually had on homes with a roof pitch of at least 8 in 12 or steeper. This type of dormer needs a roof pitch shallower than that of the original. A general rule of thumb is to keep a shed dormer at least 4 in 12. (A shallower or steeper pitch will make the dormer look out of place).

Hold ctrl, shift, c to open your cheat box. Then type in sethighestallowedlevel 16. Once you do this you can build the normal 3 level and put a dormer on the roof. Delete the roof and dormer and now you can build on that level. You can continue doing this for 16 levels!


A single pitch roof is basically a flat roof with a pitch (or angle), usually to allow water to run off. This differs from a double pitch roof /\ that is what you commonly see.


Roof pitch is measured in "rise over run". In other words, how many inches does the roof rise vertically in 12" of horizontal run. If a roof rises 4" in 12" of run, you have a 4/12 roof pitch.
