Loft Conversions Newton Aycliffe

Newton Aycliffe Loft Conversions (DL5): For the most part the most common way that home-owners create a little extra livable space in their houses nowadays is by getting an extension built on their property. This might be on the front, the side or the back and whichever holds true you'll be expanding your home's footprint. You can develop far more space at a roughly equivalent price converting your loft, and you won't extend the footprint at all. One other option that might be possible is to do a garage conversion, although this will be dependant upon your having a spare garage that is not needed for your car. In most situations a nicely converted loft will add a good amount of value to your property, be much less disruptive and messy than a regular extension, enable you to keep your treasured garden space and will not require planning permission.

Mansard Loft Conversions Newton Aycliffe

The Mansard kind of creating loft conversions started off sometime during the 17th Century thanks to a renowned French architect by the name of Francois Mansart (yes Mansart not Mansard!). It was developed to be a handy way of creating extra space which would deliver a sizable volume of extra liveable space where previously there wasn't any. The Mansard attic conversion is only applied on roof which are pitched and added space is created by elevating one wall (quite often in the rear of the home) and also leveling out that section of the roof, thereby creating a pretty much vertical shape. The final angle of the wall that is built up must be on no less than a 72 degree slant. It is very often the situation that the wall which requires elevating is shared with a neighbour (particularly with terraced houses), which means that you'll be needing the co-operation of your immediate neighbour - yet another worry if you're not the best of buddies!

Loft Conversion - The Beginnings

Converting Lofts Newton Aycliffe County DurhamWhilst the process of doing a loft conversion may seem like rather "British", some of the early loft conversions and the initial ideas for remodeling such spaces came about in nineteen sixties America. The exact location for this building revolution was the Soho district of New York City, where new, cool living environments were developed by designers and artists in the higher parts of ramshackle industrial structures. The situation was that those areas and industrial buildings hadn't been allocated for residential purposes, and thus were largely illegal in those times. It wasn't until the early 1970's that New York eventually made this practise legal, and consequently various other districts of the city including Tribeca, Manhattan, Greenwich Village and Chelsea followed suit, and "loft living" was a common thing for the talented, wealthy and young. In the UK doing a loft conversion is an attractive concept particularly in large urban centres such as London, Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool, where building land is costly and any method by which to develop more liveable space without having to extend the footprint of a structure is welcome.
