Mansard Conversions

The Mansard design of creating loft conversions was developed during the Seventeenth Century due to a French architect called Francois Mansart (yes Mansart not Mansard!). He thought it would be a bit of a way of creating extra space that would provide an enormous measure of additional living area in an unused area. The Mansard sort of loft conversion can only be applied to pitched roofs and space is produced by elevating one of the walls (often at the back of a home) and also flattening out that part of the roof, consequently creating an essentially box profile. The final angle of the built up wall should be not less than seventy two degrees. It will often be the case that the wall needing to be built up is also your neighbour's (especially in terraced houses), which means you'll need your immediate neighbour's cooperation - an additional worry if they are awkward to get on with!

Cellar Conversion

Cellar Conversion

Yet another effective way to add extra liveable space to your home is to undertake a cellar/basement conversion. Not surprisingly this form of conversion can only be carried out on certain types of residence, generally older properties for instance Victorian or period properties. In some instances you will find there are also properties built after the war with cellars/basements that are ideal for converting. Together with the obvious advantage of increased space, a cellar conversion may also fix dampness issues while increasing the value of your house. Similar to what folks use their attics for, lots of homeowners only use their basements/cellars as dumping grounds (they might call it storage!) for all sorts of household waste. With some investment and effort you could potentially convert your basement or cellar into an entertainment zone, a gym or a workshop. A guest room or a kitchen/diner are amongst the other alternatives if your cellar is big enough. (Tags: Cellar Conversions, Cellar Conversion, Basement Conversions)
