Description

Loft conversions are one of the most popular types of home alteration and, as this book shows, they can be an enormously useful and stylish addition to a house. If you have not been involved in a building project before, The Complete Loft Conversion Book guides you through the entire process with chapters arranged so that they follow the sequence of events in a real project.

  • Shows how to identify whether your roof space is suitable for conversion and how designers work out ways to make the best use of available space.
  • Using three-dimensional sketches and colour photographs of actual projects, the author illustrates the options for fitting in a staircase and indicates how to estimate the headroom that will be available.
  • Considers the requirements of the local authority planners and building control officers, and provides tips on how to make applications and approvals run smoothly.
  • Presents highly detailed drawings and photographs showing the conversion process.
  • Provides advice on how to avoid cowboy builders and track down the ideal company, how to draw up a fair contract and how to deal with the legal issues that may arise.
  • Supplies checklists and specifications to help monitor progress and ensure that the work is completed to a good standard.
