Depends a great deal on the roof framing of course (to make room for the open space for the bathroom) and headroomc considerations and such, and of course on any local height of building regulations if looking at bumping the maximum roof height up with it - but below are links to a couple of similar previous questions with answers which might answer initial questions.

But to get a really decent picture of cost, you need to have an architect rough out a conceptual plan and cost estimate - or talk to a General Contrator about a ballpark cost, but the latter generally tends to get you into dealing with just one contractor, whereas having an architect working for YOU gives you the design you want, and the plans and specs needed for bidders to big your job based on a consistent scope of work, and also to provide the scope of work and plans needed for the winning bidder's contract and work.
