XIIV century the French architect Francois Mansaro thanks to the to the long the uninhabited lofts have become residential. It is true that they are most often located recognize artists or poor. Nowadays remembering F. Mansarą people call a penthouse or loft, and its inhabitants no longer What are the poor, quite the contrary – the ones who had the opportunity and the ways to turn your attic property and redesign it.
Construction of the new house attic installation does not cause any problems: construction of a new, strong, and most installation works combined with others.
Is something different loft conversion already built house, an existing building. In addition to space planning, and challenges appears by constructions, including – the stairs to the attic, ceiling lining and thermal insulation solutions.
An overlay can be strengthening with triangular trusses girders prepared from a wood or steel. They are easily installed to the roof of the house of the separate elements. Such constructions are reliable and practical. These trusses convenient and sophisticated designs for roofs where the supporting structure is composed of several elements.
If the house was built in relatively recently, it is possible that it will be enough trusses completely finished, so will be completely easy to create such a stylish premises.
The most simplest wall finishes techniques – siding, gypsum board or OSB panels. Rafters can be varnished or covered with antiseptic paint. Floors (wooden) installed in combined height of the sound and thermal isolation materials.
Loft size and height
The building regulations in England and Wales require that part of a habitable room in a loft space should be at least 2-3m high from the finished floor level to the finished ceiling. The area of the part at this full height must be at least half the floor area on a plan measured at a height of 1.5m above the finished floor.
To measure up the roof, prepare two battens, one 2.7m and the other the appropriate part height for your part of the country plus a 30,, allowance for floor joist decking and plasterboard ceiling. Use these battens in conduction with vertical spirit level to mark out the inner floor area with the roof at 2.7m. Mark the batten positions on the joist with chalk or a dab of white paint.
Measure these areas and transfer the sizes to a scale plan plotting the exact position of the corners relative to the house wall corners. MArk any obstructions such as chimney stacks, but note that chimney stacks donut count in the area calculation, you can consider the space as if they weren’t there.
From the plan t will be possible to see if the inner area at full height and outer area at part height meet the requirements. If they don’t, it may be possible to devise a way of using only part of the roof space for your conversion so that the ratio of part-height and full-height space improves otherwise it is almost certainly possible to satisfy the regulations by installing a dormer window which juts out from the roof to give the necessary headroom. Most loft conversions are carried out on this basis.
When thinking about the new space in aloft you need to remember that the window floor area can determine the area of window the regulation require. For this reason and to meet rules for headroom height, it’s often sensible to limit the floor area by installing vertical side walls on at least some sides of the new room. Partition walls are useful anyway to provide storage space and to mask off any plumbing left in the roof supports. However, all round won’t need vertical walls all round the roof space and as sloping walls add character to the space it is worth retaining them where possible.
