Draw beams above the door, then add the roof.

Not really a dormer- it's a shed roof over the garage door. Henry has you going in the right direction

If an active dormer and you've got upper living space, i'd add walls in the upper and pitch the bottoms of the walls to sit atop the spread truss girders.  (fairly time consuming but looks proper)

 

This is an old gambrel barn the customer will convert into a home.
