This works only for pitched roofs, and it involves extending one wall, usually to a 72 degree angle, and then flattening the roof. This means that from the front of the property, the addition will look like a third storey, and with the right external decoration, the loft conversion will fit in with the rest of the building, and not look like an addition.
