Loft Conversions March

March Loft Conversions (PE15): Generally speaking the most typical method by which home-owners generate a bit of extra livable space in their houses these days is by getting an extension built onto the building. This may be done on the side, the front or the back and whichever is the case you will be increasing your home's footprint. It's possible to generate even more room at a similar cost by doing a loft conversion, and even better you won't expand the footprint in the process. The other option which might be possible is to have a garage conversion, but this will be dependant upon you having a spare garage that is not required for putting your car in. Usually a professionally converted loft will won't need any planning permission, enable you to preserve your valuable outside space, add a fair amount of value to your property and be less messy and disruptive than a typical extension.

Of course the costs may well sway your decision to proceed with the conversion and several factors have to be considered. Among these factors are, the style of conversion you are having, the size and layout of the house, the type and amount of windows or skylights you need and the intended use of the created rooms. As you are going to need to obtain several quotes, watch out for building companies in March who are offering a free quotation service. The UK typical cost of a loft conversion in 2019 is estimated to be somewhere between thirty and forty thousand pounds.

You mustn't take these numbers as gospel, since there are a lot of variables involved. £1,250 per square metre is an approximate idea of the price of materials and construction work. In addition to that, building control fees, architect fees and planning fees will contribute more to the eventual bill.

How much will likely be added to the value of your property in March, is something you'll need to establish. Not everybody understands the fact that there's always a ceiling price on homes in any neighbourhood of March. Increasing the value of your house above this figure could result in obstacles to selling in the future. It will come as no surprise that this could render your loft conversion less of an attraction. If you have no plans to sell maybe you'll still want to proceed, because what you actually need is more space.

One option that you could think about is a shell loft conversion, especially if you're competent at do-it-yourself. This is a basic loft conversion whereby all of the essential structural jobs are undertaken, such as structural floor, external windows and doors, stairs, steelwork, dormers and roofing. The remainder of the project is left to the customer (namely you), so it can be completed in your own time and done to your own specifications. For capable people or those of you with limited funds this can be a possibility.

Roof Light Conversions March

Undoubtedly the least disruptive and cheapest type of loft conversion is a "roof light conversion", where it is not necessary to change the angle or shape of the roof. This type of conversion involves just fitting stairs for easy access, putting in skylight windows, and installing an appropriate floor. Only lofts that already have the required amount of roof space and don't need extending at all, are suitable candidates for roof light loft conversions.

Mansard Loft Conversions March

The Mansard style of loft conversion first saw the light of day sometime in the 1600's thanks to a French architect known as Francois Mansart (yes Mansart not Mansard!). It became a huge space saving method which would deliver a substantial quantity of further living area in an unused area. The Mansard attic conversion is only utilized on roofs that are pitched and space is generated by elevating one of the walls (more often than not at the back of a home) coupled with leveling out the top of the roof, therefore creating an essentially box contour. The final angle of the wall that's built up has to be on a minimum of a 72 degree incline. It is very often the scenario that the wall to be brought up is a party wall with a neighbour (particularly in a house in a terrace), which means you will be needing the co-operation of your immediate neighbour - an extra concern if you do not get on that well!

History of Loft Conversions

Converting Lofts March Cambridgeshire

Whilst doing a loft conversion may seem like rather "British", the earliest loft conversions and maybe the first ideas for converting lofts originated in nineteen sixties America. The neighbourhood which was involved in this building revolution was the Soho district of New York, where new, trendy living areas were created by designers and artists in the higher parts of long neglected industrial buildings. In fact these areas and industrial buildings were not allocated for residential purposes, and hence were considered illegal at that time. It was not until nineteen seventy one that New York City at long last legalized this practise, and subsequently various other districts of New York such as Chelsea, Tribeca, Manhattan and Greenwich Village followed suit, and "loft living" was a popular thing for the young, wealthy and talented. In Britain converting a loft is an extremely attractive undertaking in large cities such as Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds and London, where building land is expensive and any means to acquire additional space without the need to extend the structure's footprint is favoured.
