One option that you might consider is a shell loft conversion, especially if you're skilled at do-it-yourself. That's where all of the key structural work, like roofing work, dormers/mansard, staircase, steelwork (when needed), joists and Velux windows is completed. The householder (to be precise you) is left to finish off the rest of the work at his / her leisure. Shell loft conversions are usually less expensive, so if funds are tight, this might be a better solution.

Loft Conversions - The Origins

Converting Lofts Fleet Hampshire

Though the concept of a loft conversion might seem like a very "British" thing, some of the earliest loft conversions and maybe the first notions of upgrading such spaces came about in 1960's America. The specific location of this innovative building revolution was the Soho district of New York City, where new, cool living spaces were created by local designers and artists in the higher sections of run down industrial properties. The truth was that those properties and zones hadn't been allotted for residential usage, and thus were mainly illegal at that time. It was not until nineteen seventy one that New York eventually legalized this practise, and after this some other districts of New York including Tribeca, Greenwich Village, Manhattan and Chelsea followed suit, and "loft living" was a common thing for the young, wealthy and talented. In the United Kingdom converting a loft is a desirable concept in particular in huge cities such as Birmingham, London, Leeds and Manchester, where building land is costly and any way to generate additional space without the need to extend the footprint of a structure is favoured.

There are naturally other techniques to add more living space to your home in Fleet. Home extensions have become the most popular ways that this can be accomplished. House extensions in Fleet are only plausible if you've got adequate space surrounding your property. They will also depend upon gaining planning permission from your local authority. As your close neighbours are typically affected, planning permission is essential for all home extensions. House extensions are often carried out by the same Fleet building firms who do loft conversions. Extending also increases the footprint of you property and the whole process might be disruptive. A number of details must be considered before pressing ahead with a home extension in Fleet, these include the likes of: close by trees, shared walls, access to the site, rights of way, the chances of flooding, demands on services and inherant soil conditions. The average cost of home extensions Fleet at the time of writing (2020) was approximately £1,600 and £2,000 per square meter. Click for Fleet Home Extension QUOTES
