Loft Conversions Hedge End

Hedge End Loft Conversions (SO30): Generally speaking the most commonplace method by which house-holders generate some extra living space in their houses these days is by having an extension built onto their building. This may be on the front, the side or the back and whichever holds true you will end up substantially extending the footprint made by your home. It's possible to create even more space for much the same cost by putting in a loft conversion, and even better you will not increase the footprint in the process. The other alternative that could be possible is to do a garage conversion, but this will be dependant on your having a garage to spare that isn't needed for putting your car in. In most situations a well built loft conversion will be less disruptive and messy than a conventional extension, will likely not need planning permission, add a good amount of value to your property and permit you to preserve your much needed garden space.

Loft Conversions - The Beginnings

Converting Lofts Hedge End HampshireAlthough doing a loft conversion might be considered a "British" thing, some of the first loft conversions and maybe the first notions of upgrading such spaces came about in 1960's America. The location for this building phenomenon was New York's Soho district, where new, cool living environments were developed by artists and the like in the upper levels of shabby industrial structures. The truth was that such industrial buildings and areas were not designated for this purpose, and as such were to all intents and purposes illegal in those times. It was not until the early 70's that New York eventually made this practise legal, and after this various other parts of New York including Chelsea, Greenwich Village, Tribeca and Manhattan joined the revolution, and "loft living" was the in thing to do for the wealthy, talented and young. In the UK doing a loft conversion is a desirable proposition in particular in big cities such as Manchester, London, Birmingham and Sheffield, where space is pricey and any method by which to generate more living space without extending the building's footprint is naturally welcome.
