Loft Conversion by Loft Conversions Portsmouth
Although it may only be a modest increase, building a loft conversion will add weight to your house and so you'll need to make sure that the structure of the building can take it. When you convert your loft you are going to lose storage space but you gain so much more usable space than you had before.
The Various Types Of Loft Conversions In Portsmouth
One type of loft conversion involves one or both slopes of the roof being replaced with a new structure with very steep sloping sides (almost as steep as the walls).
In order to maximise productivity, a home office requires plenty of natural light, so steer clear of black-out blinds and heavy materials when designing your loft conversion. Popular, but less traditional, uses for a loft conversion include a teenage den, cinema room or home office.
Building Regulations In Portsmouth, Hampshire
Because loft conversions will always need approval under building regulations (irrespective of whether they need planning permission) it pays to adopt the full plans application approach and have a detailed scheme approved before you approach a builder. As a loft conversion involves a material change of use, building regulations must be met.
Homes in listed areas will generally have restricted permitted development rights.
