Similar to the dormer conversion, L-shaped dormers are a great way of maximising the room in your loft and opening it up to create more usable space. They can be fitted onto properties that are already in an L shape, usually terraced houses, giving a whole new floor with space for several additional rooms. You might also hear them being referred to as outrigger loft conversions.

WHAT IS AN L-SHAPED DORMER LOFT CONVERSION?
Structurally, an L-shaped conversion is very similar to a dormer conversion – it is just built onto a property that is a different shape. In order for your property to work with one of these loft conversions, you will usually need to have had an extension at the back to create the right shape. The extension itself will then be built out of the existing roof, on top of the property and the extension, with flat walls and ceiling.
WHO WOULD CHOOSE AN L-SHAPED DORMER LOFT CONVERSION?
These are some of the main reasons why you might select an L-shaped dormer loft conversion:
MAXIMUM SPACE This is by far the most spacious type of loft conversion, giving you capacity for various additional rooms.
GOOD LIGHTING With the tall walls and high ceiling, you will be able to incorporate lots of natural light into your loft space.
VERSATILITY You will be able to fit in rooms like bathrooms and various types of taller furniture, allowing you to use the space flexibly.

HOW MUCH DOES A L-SHAPED DORMER LOFT CONVERSION COST?
Summary: L-shaped dormers are very similar to standard dormers, but they have the potential to give you significantly more space. The prerequisite is that you will need to have the right property shape in the first place, usually with an extension built onto the back to create that L shape. With this style of dormer there is the opportunity to create multiple new rooms underneath your roof.
Cost: An average L-shaped dormer loft conversion will cost in the region of £75,000.
