Loft Conversions Woking

Woking Loft Conversions (GU18, GU19 and GU21): Generally the most common way that house-holders generate a bit of extra living space in their houses at present is by getting an extension built on their building. This could be done on the back, the front or the side and no matter what may be the case you will end up considerably expanding your home's footprint. It's possible to develop even more space for a comparable price by having a loft conversion, and you won't expand the footprint at all. The other alternative that may be possible is to do a garage conversion, although this is dependant upon you having a spare garage that you don't require for parking your car. Typically a professionally converted loft will add a good deal of value to your property, be much less disruptive and messy than a typical extension, allow you to preserve your priceless garden space and won't need planning permission.

History of Loft Conversion

While doing a loft conversion might seem like rather "British", the early loft conversions and possibly the initial ideas for transforming lofts came about in nineteen sixties America. The exact location of this brand new building phenomenon was New York's Soho district, where new, cool living spaces were developed by local designers and artists in the upper levels of run down industrial properties. The truth was that such properties and zones weren't allotted for residential purposes, and thus were mainly illegal in the day. It was not until 1971 that New York at long last legalized this practise, and after this many other parts of the city such as Chelsea, Tribeca, Manhattan and Greenwich Village joined the revolution, and "loft living" was a no brainer for the wealthy, young and talented. In the UK doing a loft conversion is a desirable proposition in particular in big population centres such as Birmingham, Sheffield, London and Manchester, where land is costly and any means to achieve more liveable space without extending the footprint of a structure is welcomed.
