Dormer Loft Conversions
The most common types of loft conversions are dormer loft conversions. They are usually built in mid terrace and end of terrace properties that already have gable walls in place.
These tend to be the easiest type of lofts to convert and are capable of providing a relatively large amount of usable space quickly and at a low cost. Not only do they provide a greater internal volume for the given floor area (compared to hipped roofs) with this type of construction the gable walls are often capable of providing ready made support for new elements of the structure such as roof and floor beams in most cases we can find room for a bedroom and en-suite bathroom.
If there is a rear addition to the property we can sometimes build a secondary dormer above this to create a second bedroom in addition to the rooms we have already built. To qualify as permitted development a box dormer is built on the opposite side of the building to the highway.
