false dormer

I am looking to add some architectural relief to my roof (needs to be reshingled anyway). I want to construct a false eyebrow dormer on my roof. How do I frame this? Dormer roof is curved radius, how do I sheet this and shingle it? Roofline of dormer will be arched, height of the arch will be 18 to 20" max. width of the dormer at the base will be approx 6'.
Any ideas or better yet any sketches or drawings?
Thanks fo your help

Take a look at this thread at "This Old House." If I remember correctly, in one of the magazine issues within the past year or 2 Norm went into detail on how to design and frame an eyebrow.


Good Luck. If I think about it, I will see if I can find that issue of This Old House magazine.
