Thornaby Loft Conversions (): Generally speaking the most typical way that householders generate some extra livable space in their houses nowadays is by having an extension onto their property.

You can create much more room at a roughly equivalent cost by putting in a loft conversion, and you won't extend the footprint in the process.

In most instances a converted loft will add a good amount of value to your property, won't require planning permission, enable you to keep your much needed outside space and be much less disruptive and messy than a regular extension.

Mansard Loft Conversions

The Mansard style of creating a loft conversion was first developed in about the 17th Century thanks to a French architect named Francois Mansart (yes Mansart not Mansard!). It was developed to be a good way of creating extra living space that could generate a large measure of added liveable space where there wasn't any before. This style of conversion can only be built on pitched roofs and added space is fashioned by elevating one of the walls (generally at the back of a property) coupled with flattening out that area of the roof, and as a result creating a near box contour. The created angle of the elevated wall must be on at least a 72 degree slant. It will oftentimes be the case that you will be hoping to raise a wall that is also your neighbour's (especially with terraced houses), so this means that you'll need your immediate neighbour's co-operation - yet another worry if there's any bitterness!

Loft Conversions - The Beginnings

Whilst the concept of a loft conversion may be considered a rather "British" thing, some of the first loft conversions and probably the initial ideas for converting such spaces came about in the United States of America in the nineteen sixties. The location for this inventive building revolution was the Soho district of New York, where cool, new living environments were built by local artists and designers in the higher parts of shabby industrial structures. The truth was that such areas and properties hadn't been designated for this purpose, and as such were largely illegal in the day. It wasn't until the early 1970's that New York City ultimately made this practise legal, and subsequently some other parts of the city including Greenwich Village, Manhattan, Tribeca and Chelsea jumped on the bandwagon, and "loft living" became the thing to do for the young, wealthy and talented. In the UK loft conversion is an extremely attractive option in big urban centres like Manchester, London, Birmingham and Leeds, where space is at a premium and any means by which to acquire more liveable space without the need to extend the structure's footprint is sought after.
