Loft Conversion Origins

Converting Lofts Heath Hayes Staffordshire

Though the concept of a loft conversion might appear to be a rather "British" thing, some of the first loft conversions and the first notions of remodeling loft spaces began in the United States of America in the Sixties. The neighbourhood involved in this new building fad was the Soho district of New York, where new, trendy living environments were created by artists and designers in the upper parts of derelict industrial buildings. The situation was that such zones and industrial buildings were not set aside for residential purposes, and as a result were mainly illegal at that time. It wasn't until 1971 that New York City finally made this practise legal, and thereafter various other parts of the city such as Manhattan, Chelsea, Tribeca and Greenwich Village jumped on the bandwagon, and "loft living" became the in thing to do for the wealthy, young and talented. In Great Britain converting a loft is an exceedingly appealing option in large metropolitan areas such as London, Birmingham, Sheffield and Manchester, where space is in short supply and any method by which to get additional liveable space without the need to extend the footprint of a structure is understandably welcomed.

Hip to Gable Loft Conversions Heath Hayes

There are a lot of properties in Heath Hayes which have hipped roofs with ends that slope together with the sides, and these are typically semi-detached and detached homes. This puts a limit on the amount of space that is readily available for a loft conversion, and one of the ways around this is to go with a "hip-to-gable" loft conversion, which is a clever answer to this problem. By modifying the slope to a vertical, this essentially makes a hip end into a gable end, subsequently generating significantly more space. It's quite possible that you might have two hipped ends, if your house is a detached property, which means you can develop yet more space by doing a double hip-to-gable conversion. You'll still need to check with your local authority, but as a rule hip to gable conversions come in the "permitted developments" group and don't need planning permission. If you've got an end of terrace property with a hipped roof in Heath Hayes, you might also be in a position to do a hip-to-gable loft conversion. Due to the extra structural work that's involved, hip-to-gable conversions are typically more costly than other kinds of loft conversion (approximately 20% extra). Another solution is a side dormer loft conversion, which is cheaper but does not generate as much space.

Loft Buds Heath Hayes: If you've got a few quotes for loft conversions and discover they're too costly for you a "house extension pod", "loft pod" or "loft BUD" will be far more affordable.

With loft pods commonly coming within the £20-30,000 price bracket, they tend to be more attractive and affordable for the average householder.

A loft pod (or bud) may be employed independently as an extension in its own right or attached or added to a current conversion. You will find that there are a wide range of applications for a loft pod (or BUD) including a playroom, a home cinema, a mini-gym or a home office.
