Hello there,
I looked at a possible home to purchase today in Apple Valley CA. On the 5 Acre lot there is a very old (likely the original home) all concrete block house but it has no roof or frame for a roof and all the windows are out. Does anyone have any idea what it would cost to build a pitched roof and put windows (3) back in? I'm thinking it would make a great work shop or cold storage for my canning and root vegetables. I'm guessing it is 650 - 700 sq feet.

thanks for the input

You're not providing enough info-
Pitch of roof
gable ends, or hip
length of ridge
how much eve, and soffit.

Want stick built, or truss?
Want attic area, or finishable space?
What kind of roof- metal, composite asphalt, shake, slate?

What kind of windows?
Wood, vinyl, aluminum?
Single hung, double, casement, awning, Yada, yada, yada...

Maybe some pic's?
