    Already got a full width single story extension and wanting to add a self build half width 'Victorian' style conservatory to it. All the ones I've seen on the buy on line places expect it to be fitted up against the full height of the wall so the back of the roof butts up to it.

    Our existing extension roof slopes forward and there is a gutter. We're trying to find a solution for fitting the new conservatory roof where it meets the extension. All possibilities considered.

    Any tips or ideas gratefully received.

    You need to look a little harder ;) The picture in the link below shows something along the lines you might be looking for

    Basically you end up with the gutters in a valley between the extension and conservatory. Not the ideal layout because valleys collect debris like leaves etc. But your options sound limited
