Loft Conversion Beginnings

Converting Lofts Broxburn Scotland

Whilst doing a loft conversion might be considered very "British", the earliest loft conversions and maybe the initial notions of upgrading such spaces came about in the United States of America during the 1960's. The location for this ingenious building revolution was New York's Soho district, where new, stylish living areas were developed by designers and artists in the higher levels of derelict industrial properties. The truth was that those industrial buildings and areas were not allocated for residential purposes, and thus were considered illegal at the time. It was not until the early 1970's that New York City eventually made this practise legal, and consequently numerous other sections of New York including Greenwich Village, Manhattan, Chelsea and Tribeca joined the revolution, and "loft living" was a common thing for the young, wealthy and talented. In the UK loft conversion is an attractive proposition in particular in big cities like Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham and London, where space is pricey and any way to get additional space without extending the footprint of a structure is favoured.

Hip to Gable Loft Conversions Broxburn

A number of semi-detached and detached houses in Broxburn have hipped roofs with ends that are inclined along with the sides. These types of roof have a confined amount of loft space, which can be increased considerably by implementing a hip-to-gable style loft conversion. A lot more space is created by essentially changing a hip end into a gable end, as the slope is turned into a vertical. You may even be able to do a double hip-to-gable conversion, if your home is a detached property in Broxburn, because in this situation it is likely that you will have 2 hipped ends. Hip-to-gable loft conversions typically come in the "permitted developments" grouping, which often do not require planning permission. However, to be on the safe side, always check with your local planning department. It's not only detached and semi-detached houses in Broxburn that are candidates for hip-to-gable loft conversions, since some end of terrace homes with hipped roofs may also be suitable. Hip-to-gable conversions are usually about twenty percent more pricey that other sorts of conversion, mainly because they call for more structural work. An alternative solution which is cheaper but does not generate as much space, is the side dormer conversion.
