Loft Conversions Banbury

You will doubtless have already got an idea about what your newly added space is going to be used for in your planned loft conversion. It might be that you like the idea of a playroom where your kids can enjoy their own quality space, maybe you want to put in an office where you are able to do your work in a quiet and relaxed environment, or perhaps you are in desperate need of an extra bedroom or two for your growing family. A loft conversion is certainly an effective way to deliver that added living space, whatever you want to do with it.

You must not just assume that you'll be able to do a loft conversion, given that not every loft is suitable. You can get somebody round to look over your loft and ensure that it can in fact be converted. One factor is the total height of the loft space, if it is in excess of 2.2m you should be set fair as far as height goes. Measuring the height doesn't really need an expert, in actual fact you could do this for yourself with nothing more than a measuring tape and a ladder. The style of roof you have will also be a factor, roofs with trusses are trickier and more expensive than those made with rafters.

If you are something of a do-it-yourself devotee you could even consider opting for what's known as a shell loft conversion. All of the major structural work, such as skylights/windows, steelwork, staircase, structural floor, mansard/dormers and roof alterations, will be undertaken by the conversion specialist. The internal finishing work will be left for the home owner to do to their own specifications. Shell loft conversions are generally considerably cheaper, so if money is an issue, this could be a good resolution.

Dormer Conversions

Dormer windows are a fantastic way to add more space and light into a attic or loft, and just as there are different kinds of loft conversions in Banbury, you'll also find there are different types of dormers available. The most popular types of dormer design include: shed dormers, eyebrow dormers, gable dormers, flat roof dormers and hipped dormers. The simplest of those to construct and probably the most widely used in Banbury would be the flat roofed dormer window. This design also generates more additional space than the other designs, making it practical as well as cost-effective, however it is often regarded as slightly less desirable than some of the other alternatives. Eyebrow dormers are extremely eye-catching in the right location and consist of a curving roof over a wide, low window, they have not got any straight sides. Shed dormer windows resemble flat roofed dormers, providing a roof (on a single plane) inclined at an angle less than that of the house roof. Gable dormers are more attractive with simple pitched rooves more suitable for period homes, gable dormers are sometimes known as gable fronted dormers ot dog-house dormers. Hipped dormer windows are appealing, have 3 sloped surfaces similar to the existing roof, these are sometimes called hip roof dormers.

Loft Conversion - The Origins

Converting Lofts Banbury Oxfordshire

Whilst the process of doing a loft conversion may be considered an awfully "British" thing, the earliest loft conversions and the initial ideas for converting loft spaces began in nineteen sixties America. The specific location for this new building revolution was New York's Soho district, where trendy, new living spaces were created by local designers and artists in the upper levels of tumbledown industrial structures. The situation was that these buildings and areas had not been designated for residential purposes, and subsequently were to all intents and purposes illegal in the day. It wasn't until the early 1970's that New York City at long last made this practise legal, and consequently various other districts of New York including Tribeca, Manhattan, Greenwich Village and Chelsea followed suit, and "loft living" was a no brainer for the talented, young and wealthy. In the UK doing a loft conversion is an attractive concept particularly in large metropolitan areas like Leeds, Birmingham, Manchester and London, where building space is in short supply and any method by which to gain extra liveable space without extending the structure's footprint is with good reason popular.

Points such as rights of way, close by trees, soil conditions, demands on services, shared walls, site access and the likelihood of flooding, will all have to be looked at when planning on having a home extension in Banbury. The typical cost of home extensions Banbury at the time of writing (2020) was about £1,500 and £2,000 per square meter. Click for Banbury Home Extension QUOTES

Cellar Conversions

A cellar conversion is another great way to add further living area to your house. Needless to say this form of conversion can only be carried out on particular kinds of house, typically older properties for example period or Victorian properties. In some instances there are also post-war properties with basements or cellars which are suitable for converting. Carrying out a high quality cellar conversion may also help to address issues with dampness which are commonplace in cellars. Similar to what people use their attics for, many householders only use their basements as a dumping ground (storage) for a plethora of household junk. You could easily transform your cellar into a games room, a home office or a home cinema and make it such a lot more than just storage. An extra bedroom or maybe even a self-contained flat are among the other options if there is enough space. (Tags: Cellar Conversions, Cellar Conversion, Basement Conversions)
