ABOUT COTTAGE DORMER LOFT CONVERSIONS 

Cottage dormer loft conversions either have a hipped or gable roof and a popular choice due to the aesthetically pleasing design. This type of loft conversion is often used to convert a bungalow or hipped roof but can be designed to fit all house styles. 
 
Cottage dormers are built in a similar way to flat roof dormers, where part of the existing roof is removed and a bigger space created by building a ‘box’ frame structure, projecting from the top of the roofline. 
 
The big difference is cottage dormers are designed with a pitched or gable roof and usually smaller than flat roof dormers, which is why adding two or more cottage dormers has become a popular design choice.

Building a cottage dormer will increase headroom and floor space, as well as adding character to the existing roof. This type of conversion is prefect for adding large windows or even French doors and a juliette balcony. 
 
Cottage dormer loft conversions can be constructed without gaining planning permission, although planning permission may be required depending on the specifications.  
 
Estimated build time is 6-7 weeks.
