Mansard Conversions

The Mansard type of loft conversion was first developed in around the 1600's by a French architect named Francois Mansart (yes Mansart not Mansard!). He thought it would be a huge way of creating living space that would provide an appreciable quantity of added living area where there wasn't any before. The Mansard type of conversion is only used on pitched roofs and space is generated by elevating one of the walls (in general to the rear of the house) and then flattening out that part of the roof, and so creating a virtually box contour. The finished angle of the wall that is raised is required to be on at least a 72 degree slant. It's quite often the case that the wall to be brought up is a party wall with a neighbour (particularly with houses that are terraced), which means that you'll need your neighbour's collaboration - a further concern if you do not get on that well!
