Mansard Loft Conversions Kirriemuir

The Mansard style of loft conversion was first used sometime in the 17th Century the brainwave of a renowned French architect called Mansart. It became a handy way of creating extra space which could deliver a large amount of supplementary liveable space where there previously was none. The Mansard kind of loft conversion is only employed on roofs that are pitched and additional space is produced by raising one wall (more often than not at the back of a property) coupled with leveling out that section of the roof, consequently creating an essentially box profile. The finished angle of the wall that's built up has to be at least 72 degrees. It is frequently the situation that the wall needing to be built up is a party wall (particularly in a house in a terrace), which means you will need your neighbour's cooperation - yet another concern if they are difficult to get along with!

Hip to Gable Loft Conversion Kirriemuir

Hip to Gable Conversions Kirriemuir: There are plenty of properties in Kirriemuir that have got hipped roofs with sloping ends as well as sides, and these are mainly detached and semi-detached properties. This puts a limit on the amount of space that's available for a loft conversion, and one of the ways around this is to go with a hip to gable style of loft conversion, which is a nifty answer to this problem. More space is created by basically changing a hip end into a gable end, since the slope is transformed into a vertical. It's quite possible that you might have two hipped ends, if your house is a detached property, which means you can generate even more space by building a double hip-to-gable conversion. Hip-to-gable conversions usually come in the "permitted developments" category, which mostly don't require planning permission. However, to be on the safe side, double check with your local planning department. If you've got an end of terrace house with a hipped roof in Kirriemuir, you might also be in a position to do a hip-to-gable conversion. Due to the additional structural work that is involved, hip-to-gable conversions are typically more costly than other types of conversion (twenty percent extra in some cases). An alternative solution which is more affordable but does not generate so much space, is a side dormer loft conversion.
