South Woodham Ferrers Loft Conversions (CM3): On the whole the most popular way that householders create some additional livable space in their houses at present is by having an extension built on their property. This could be built on the front, the back or the side and whichever is the case you will be significantly extending your home's footprint. It is possible to develop a lot more room for a comparable price converting your loft, and even better you will not extend the footprint in the process. An additional alternative which may be open to you would be to have your garage converted, although this will be dependant upon your having a garage to spare that you don't require for parking your car.

History of Loft Conversions

While the concept of a loft conversion might be considered a very "British" thing, some of the first loft conversions and probably the initial ideas for upgrading lofts came about in the United States of America in the Sixties. The precise location of this innovative building revolution was New York's Soho district, where new, chic living spaces were created by local artists and designers in the higher parts of delapidated industrial buildings. In fact such properties and zones weren't allotted for residential use, and as such were to all intents and purposes illegal in those times. It was not until nineteen seventy one that New York City at long last legalized this practise, and thereafter various other districts of New York such as Chelsea, Manhattan, Greenwich Village and Tribeca followed suit, and "loft living" was a common thing for the young, talented and wealthy. In the United Kingdom loft conversion is an attractive option especially in big metropolitan areas like Manchester, London, Birmingham and Sheffield, where land is limited and any method by which to acquire extra living space without the need to extend the footprint of a building is welcome.
