Hi again, this year i also want to build a dorma window onto the back of my roof, facing my back garden.
I live in a semi rural area but have a main road in front of my house.
I have no neigbours, so i am wondering if the planers would have any objections to adding a dorma which i plan to build between my two main "A" frames in the loft, are these sorts of proposals usually granted?
I want to very slowly convert my loft, and am wondering if it might work to build the dorma without planning permission, then if i get questioned about it within 4 years, could i apply for retrospective?
the reason i'm asking this is because i just want to get started with this project, and i can't afford to spend so much money on red tape, i.e. planning permission and an arcitect, as this money could go on materials instead to build the window!
Also when plasterboarding the loft, do i need to use standard or firecheck boards?
look forward to your replies
