Loft Stairs Kirkby

Loft Stairs Kirkby

The style you decide on could be subject to your house's layout, but you can buy them in space saving designs for added convenience or in spiral form if you want elegance and style.

Hip to Gable Loft Conversions Kirkby

Hip to Gable Conversions Kirkby: A number of semi-detached and detached houses in Kirkby have hipped roofs with ends that are inclined along with the sides. This kind of roof design restricts the quantity of room that's available for a loft conversion, although by implementing a "hip-to-gable" loft conversion, more space can be developed. To all intents and purposes, this turns a hip end into a gable end (flipping the slope into a vertical), consequently generating more space that can be turned into a brand new room. You might even be able to carry out a double hip-to-gable conversion, if your house is a detached property in Kirkby, because in this situation you will likely have 2 hipped ends. Hip-to-gable loft conversions generally fall under the "permitted developments" grouping, which for the most part do not require planning permission. However, to put your mind at rest, check with your local planning office. As well as detached and semi-detached houses, end-of-terrace dwellings in Kirkby may also be candidates for hip to gable loft conversions if they have hipped roofs. Because of the extra structural work that's involved, hip-to-gable conversions are generally more costly than other forms of conversion (twenty percent extra in some cases). A side dormer conversion is a less expensive alternative, but does not generate anywhere near as much space as a hip-to-gable conversion.

Cellar Conversions

Cellar Conversions

Cellar Conversion Kirkby: A cellar/basement conversion is one more good way to add additional living space to your house. Not surprisingly this can only be carried out on particular sorts of house, usually older properties ie: period or Victorian properties. Some post-war houses may also be suitable and if you're lucky enough to have the luxury of a cellar, why not get the most from it?

Lots of property owners only use their cellars or basements as a dumping ground (storage) for a plethora of household waste, much like what folks use their lofts for. With a bit of effort and investment you could possibly turn your basement into a play room, a home cinema or a home office. An extra bedroom or even a self-contained apartment are among the other alternatives if you have sufficient space. (Tags: Basement Conversions, Cellar Conversion, Cellar Conversions)

Mansard Loft Conversions Kirkby

The Mansard type of doing a loft conversion started off sometime in the 17th C by a renowned French architect named Mansart. He thought it would be a unique way of creating space which would provide an enormous level of supplemental living area where there previously was none. This form of attic conversion is only applied on roof which are pitched and added space is generated by bringing up one wall (in general in the rear of the property) coupled with flattening out the roof, subsequently creating an essentially vertical shape. The created angle of the wall that is built up is required to be on at least a 72 degree slant. It will normally be the situation that the wall which needs lifting is a party wall (particularly with houses in a terrace block), so this means that you'll need the co-operation of your immediate neighbour - a further worry if they're difficult to get along with!
