There is no "average" cost - depends on of house, type of roof framing, etc. Go to Search Now under "Have questions" at left and put in dormer as the search word - it should bring up several prior questions and responses about costs and issues of putting in dormers.

However, sounds to me like you may be talking something else - raising the roof height all along the rooms not just in local dormer sections, which means either a total roof raising job, or change from a gabled to a gambrel roof maybe - this is a MAJOR JOB almost equivalent to putting a new level on your house. Search Now using the search term "raise roof" for a couple of prior questions and responses on that.

In either case, for a design that will work with your roof and rough cost estimate, you need to see an Architect for preliminary concept sketch and preliminary conceptual cost estimate.
