Belper Loft Conversion and Design Services

Belper Loft Conversions (DE56): In general the most common method by which home-owners create some extra liveable space in their homes these days is by having an extension on their structure. This could be done on the front, the back or the side and whichever is the case you will end up increasing the footprint of your home. You can generate even more room at a similar cost converting your loft, and even better you will not increase the footprint in the process. One other option of course that could be feasible is to have your garage converted, although this is dependant upon you having a garage to spare that you don't require for putting your car in. Usually a well built loft conversion will won't need any planning permission, be much less messy and disruptive than a conventional extension, add a good amount of value to your property and permit you to keep your invaluable outside space.

Hip to Gable Loft Conversion Belper

Hip to Gable Conversions Belper: There are a lot of properties in Belper which have hipped roofs with ends that slope along with the sides, and these are mostly detached and semi-detached homes. This limits the amount of space that's available for a loft conversion, and a good way to get round this is to opt for a "hip-to-gable" loft conversion, which is a clever answer to this dilemma. By modifying the pitch to a vertical plane, this basically turns a hip end into a gable end, subsequently generating much more space. If your home is detached it's quite possible that you'll actually have 2 hipped ends, and you can do a double hip to gable loft conversion, which should generate even more extra room. You'll still have to double check with your local planning office, but in most cases hip to gable conversions fall under the "permitted developments" grouping and don't need planning approval. As well as semi-detached and detached properties, end-of-terrace homes in Belper could also be candidates for hip to gable loft conversions if they have hipped roofs. Hip-to-gable loft conversions are usually more expensive than other forms of loft conversion, because of the additional structural work that is required. An alternative solution that is less costly but does not generate as much space, is a side dormer conversion.

Cellar/Basement Conversions

If your house isn't a good candidate for a loft conversion, a cellar or basement conversion another effective way to add additional living area. In general, only older properties (ie: Victorian or period properties) are suitable for this type of conversion. In some cases you will find there are also post-war properties with basements/cellars that are suitable for converting. Together with the obvious benefit of increased living space, a cellar conversion could also clear up problems with dampness and increase the value of your home. Oftentimes basements or cellars are merely wasted space with the tendency to just use them as dumping grounds for household bric a brac. Why not turn your cellar into a kid's play room, a workshop or a man cave and make it a lot more than merely storage. A guest apartment or a kitchen/dining room are among the other possibilities if your basement is sufficiently large. (Tags: Cellar Conversion, Basement Conversions, Cellar Conversions)
