Mansard Loft Conversions

The Mansard sort of loft conversion started off during the 17th Century the brainwave of a famous architect known as Mansart. It became a huge space creating technique which could generate a substantial quantity of supplemental living area in an unused area. This type of conversion is only built on roofs that are pitched and space is created by raising one wall (mostly to the rear of the home) coupled with flattening out that part of the roof, and as a result creating an essentially box appearance. The final angle of the built up wall should be on not less than a 72 degree incline. It's oftentimes the situation that the wall which needs raising is a party wall (particularly in houses that are terraced), so this means you'll be needing the co-operation of your immediate neighbour - a further worry if you're not the best of friends!
