Help: Adding detail to Roof/walls

I am new to Blender, dabbled a little over a yr. Recently reinstalled it. I been picking up fast. My question is, how do i add detail to a roof and wall.

I wanted to include photo of what type of details i was talking about, for better understanding. Is this possiable to do in blender 2.68. If anyone can link me a video tutorial or maybe a screenshot of the progress.

I learn and understand it better seeing it done then rather reading it.

I would use scupting to duplicate your image. Google blender sculpting tutorial and you should find what you are looking for.

You can also try using displacement maps.
