Converting your loft is a great way to add extra space to your home, and can boost your property’s value by over 20% (source: RICS).
Better still, the cost of an average loft conversion is often about a third of the cost of moving to an equivalent sized house with an extra bedroom (source: Nationwide survey). A good place to start is with the latest edition of the Haynes Loft Conversion Manual. Then take a look round this website for sample plans and drawings, and help with planning, Building Regs and the Party Wall Act. Here you can also find specialist loft conversion contractors.
