    I'm wondering if if would be possible for a loft conversion when I have a pyramid shaped roof?
    I'm thinking I would need the sides bricked up into a triangle and convert it into a normal sloping roof but that sounds very expensive to me. Any ideas if it's possible and rough idea what it might cost?

    its all possible the only promblem you will have is with a trussed hip roof it will be gate trusses and mono trusses no easy to alter also the valley pitch looks quite low so would struggle for headroom without a gable to the garage side so i would say a complete reroof

    Are your permitted development rights intact? If you need planning permission for a dormer, it's possible they would refuse one on a house like that.

    can't really see how you could make any worthwhile space out of that under PD
