Mansard Loft Conversions

The Mansard sort of creating a loft conversion started off in about the 17th C due to a well known architect known as Francois Mansart. He hoped it would be an inventive space saving method which would yield a considerable magnitude of additional living area where previously there wasn't any. This type of loft conversion is only utilized on pitched roofs and space is created by building up one of the walls (mostly at the back of a property or home) along with flattening out that area of the roof, and as a result creating a virtually vertical profile. The final angle of the raised wall must be on at least a 72 degree incline. It will quite often be the scenario that the wall which needs building up is also your neighbour's (particularly in houses in a terrace block), which means you will need your neighbour's co-operation - an extra worry if you aren't on friendly terms!
