Want to raise ceiling of mid 60s Southern Calfiornia ranch home

I am interested in purchasing this fixer upper, but one thing about it that I am not sure can be "fixed" is the low ceiling.

I have read about people raising the ceiling online but I am not sure if this can be done on this home and what the estimated cost would be.

Just to give some background, this is a single story ranch home is located in Southern California (Orange County) and was built in the mid 60s.  Over 3000 sq ft. The listing information says it's a flat roof, but the roof actually has a 15 maybe 20 degree pitch.

I am hoping the experts here can tell me, based on the age and location of the house, what type of construction the roof probably has and thus my options, along with a very broad cost estimate if possible.
