Once the internal work is completed we erect the scaffold and break through the roof and create the flat dormer as seen below.

We then build the dormer and dormer cheeks and put the facias and soft on then we also cald the top deck and felt the roof so we are water tight.

As we can see below the dormer is built and water tight but not clad we need to put in the windows which and take a month on order before doing the cladding.

We also needed to put in a velux and ventilation for the cold roof above the dormer to keep the air flowing around the roof space.

We then set about installing the insulation which was 70mm celotex fitted tightly between the joists and rafters and taped with foil tape to stop cold spots.

We then put space blanket equivalent to 200mm celotex to get the U values for the build and the 25mm battens over to take the plasterboard.
