Loft Conversions Newport Pagnell

This can be added to the side, the back or the front and no matter what is the case you'll be expanding the footprint made by your home. It's possible to create a lot more room for much the same price converting your loft, and you'll not increase the footprint at all. An additional alternative which could be possible would be to have your garage converted, however this will be dependant on you having a spare garage that you don't need for your car.

Roof Light Conversions Newport Pagnell

With "roof light loft conversions" there's no need to change the shape and angle of your roof, making it by far the least disruptive and most economical type of loft conversion. This kind of loft conversion entails simply putting in skylight windows, fitting stairs for access, and installing a sturdy floor. Such conversions are appropriate only if your loft already has adequate roof space.

Mansard Conversions

The Mansard kind of doing a loft conversion started off during the 17th Century thanks to a renowned French architect by the name of Francois Mansart (yes Mansart not Mansard!). It became a massive space creating method that would generate an enormous measure of extra liveable space in an unused area. The Mansard attic conversion is only used on roofs that are pitched and added space is produced by raising one wall (almost always to the rear of the home) along with leveling out that area of the roof, and so creating a near box profile. The final angle of the wall that's lifted is required to be more than seventy two degrees. It is very often the scenario that the wall needing to be elevated is a party wall with a neighbour (especially in houses in a terrace block), so this means that you will need your neighbour's collaboration - yet another concern if there's any animosity!

Origins of Loft Conversion

Converting Lofts Newport Pagnell BuckinghamshireThough the idea of a loft conversion might seem like a "British" thing, some of the early loft conversions and probably the first notions of upgrading loft spaces came about in the United States of America in the 1960's. The specific location for this progressive building revolution was New York's Soho district, where cool, new living environments were developed by artists and designers in the higher parts of shabby industrial buildings. In actual fact these industrial buildings and areas were not designated for residential use, and subsequently were largely illegal in the day. It wasn't until nineteen seventy one that New York at long last legalized this practise, and subsequently many other districts of New York such as Tribeca, Greenwich Village, Manhattan and Chelsea followed suit, and "loft living" was popular for the talented, wealthy and young. In the UK converting a loft is an attractive option particularly in big cities such as Manchester, London, Birmingham and Liverpool, where land is at a premium and any method by which to develop extra living space without having to extend the building's footprint is popular.
