There is no question that extending is better than moving. If you have some spare space, consider adding it to provide that much-needed extra space. A loft conversion allows you to create a room or floor with unimpeded views. Say farewell to neighboring houses since you'll more often than not enjoy views above the rooftops of adjacent properties, reaching far beyond the horizon. Take in the breathtaking splendor of the horizon. Not only will this be something to appreciate for people living in the house, but it will also be a terrific selling point as beautiful views are something that everyone desires.
Not every loft is suitable for conversion. Before you get too far into you’re your loft conversion process, we recommend doing a quick survey to verify the following:
• The structure of the roof is it a typical cut rafter and purlin or trussed
• Is the loft area large enough to accommodate a usable room?
• Chimneys and services — These do not travel through the loft level and will not need to be relocated.
• Felt – Your roof has felt beneath the tiles or is completely weatherproof. If you don't have felt, you'll see the back of the roof tiles and the battens to which they're attached. Under the tiles and battens, you will most certainly notice a black bituminous paper if you have felt.
The L-Shape conversion is the most common kind of loft conversion among owners of Victorian terraced houses and comparable structures. It entails building two dormers, one over the original house's roof and the other above the back expansion. In the majority of situations, the second dormer will be built above the existing kitchen or bathroom. The two dormers meet at a straight angle to form an 'L' shape (how this type of conversion came to be named). An L-Shape conversion has the advantage of nearly replicating your first floor in terms of size and design. It allows you to add up to three or four new rooms, and no other sort of loft conversion will provide you with as much more space.
Permitted Development Rights to allow you to increase your roof space by up to 50m3 (or 40m3 for the terraced property). Assuming the allotment hasn't already been revoked or used up. This might spare you the trouble of obtaining planning clearance, but there are severe guidelines to adhere to. For example, no modifications beyond the plane of the current roof slope are permitted at the main elevation. You can also only utilize materials that look comparable to the current house. Permitted Development Rights are revoked for loft conversions that exceed the 40 m3 to 50 m3 space allowance, in conservation areas, and in other specified zones, therefore full planning clearance is always required in this zone.
