Loft Conversions Oadby UK

Oadby Loft Conversions (LE2): Generally speaking the commonest method by which house-holders create additional living space in their homes these days is by getting an extension built on the structure. This might be done on the back, the front or the side and no matter what holds true you'll be expanding your home's footprint. It's possible to develop far more space for much the same price by having a loft conversion, and even better you won't extend the footprint in the process. An additional option of course which may be feasible is to do a garage conversion, but this will be dependant upon you having a garage to spare that is not required for parking your car. Generally a nicely converted loft will add considerable value to your property, will likely not need any planning permission, enable you to keep your cherished garden space and be much less disruptive and messy than a regular extension.

Mansard Conversions

The Mansard type of doing loft conversions was developed in around the 1600's by a famous architect called Francois Mansart. It was intended as an interesting space saving method which could gain a significant magnitude of further living space where there wasn't any before. This style of conversion can only be used on roof which are pitched and the space is produced by bringing up one of the walls (generally to the rear of the property) coupled with flattening out the top of the roof, and so creating a pretty much box shape. The created angle of the wall that's brought up must be more than 72 degrees. It is quite often the scenario that the wall needing to be heightened is also your neighbour's (particularly in houses in a terrace block), so this means that you'll be needing the cooperation of your immediate neighbour - yet another concern if they're awkward to get on with!

Cellar Conversion

Cellar Conversion

A cellar or basement conversion is yet another splendid way to add extra living space to your property. In general, only older houses (ie: Period or Victorian properties) are perfect for this type of conversion. In some cases you will find that there are also post-war properties with cellars which are ideal for converting. Along with the recognizable benefit of extra space, a cellar conversion could also remedy dampness issues while increasing the value of your house. Oftentimes basements/cellars are just wasted space with the inclination of just using them as a dumping ground for household junk. Your cellar or basement could be such a lot more than just storage, with a gym, a kid's play room or a home office being a few of the more popular options. Should you have sufficient space an extra bedroom or even a self-contained apartment are amongst the other possibilities. (Tags: Basement Conversions, Cellar Conversion, Cellar Conversions)
