Mansard Loft Conversions Redruth

The Mansard technique of creating loft conversions originated during the 17th C the brainwave of a well known architect known as Mansart (not Mansard). He thought it would be an inventive space creating technique that would deliver an appreciable amount of extra living area where previously there was none. The Mansard conversion is only used on pitched roofs and the space is generated by elevating one of the walls (normally in the rear of the property or home) and also leveling out that part of the roof, and as a result creating a virtually vertical appearance. The angle of the raised wall should be on no less than a 72 degree slant. It will very often be the case that you will be planning to heighten a wall that is a party wall (especially with a house in a terrace), so this means you will need your immediate neighbour's co-operation - a further concern if they are awkward to get on with!
