Self Build Roof & Loft Conversions Projects
Let’s be honest, most of us use our lofts and attics to store holiday decorations, suitcases and other random bits and bobs. But this space has so much potential! You could have another bedroom, a home office, a playroom or whatever you like. Conversions add monetary value to your property which you’ll benefit from should you ever sell your house. While you live in the house, it’ll be more cost effective, less time consuming and involve less upheaval than buying a new property.
Usually, you won’t need planning permission because of permitted development rights. In some cases, you might such as when the design goes beyond the current space. But always check with your local planning department to make sure, because they may flag something you hadn’t noticed. If you don’t own the property, never do any work without getting the okay from the landlord, that’ll definitely go against your rental agreement!
