L – Shaped Loft Conversion
LOOKING FOR L – SHAPED LOFT CONVERSIONS?
L-shaped loft conversions can also be known as dog leg conversions. With a property that’s suitable for this style of loft conversion it is possible to create a huge amount of extra space compared with a conventional loft conversion.
The structure of the roof is one of the things that can affect the type of loft conversion. If your home has an extension to the rear then an L shaped dormer can be a great way to take advantage of the shape of the roof.

What Is An L Shape Loft Conversion?
L-shaped loft conversions typically consist of two dormers, joined together to form the distinctive L-shape. These are most suited to Victorian terrace houses, which often have extensions to the rear that do not go the full width of the property. The L shape can be created as a mansard too which can offer even more space than a dormer.

Is Planning Permission Required For An L Shaped Loft Conversion?
In most cases L shaped dormers do not need planning permission because everything is within the footprint of the house. That being said, this is something that should be discussed with your planners or designers. All work must be completed to building regulations.
You should always consult a professional because of the complexity of the structure and additional work involved, such as altering drainage and putting in gutters to lead water away from the L shaped dormer.
