So What is “L Shaped” Dormer Loft Conversion?
An L-shaped dormer conversion is where two dormer builds are constructed in a way that they join together. Usually one dormer will be built on the rear roof and the other on the main roof which gives it the unmistakable, instantly creating that recognisable L-shape.
The shape itself means that L-shaped dormers are only suitable for certain types of property, mainly either Edwardian or Victorian properties where there has been an addition to the original house at the rear.
This type of build is a great way to get some more space out of a property like this especially if you own a mid-terrace property.
