The Various Types Of Loft Conversions In Hertfordshire
One type of loft conversion involves one or both slopes of the roof being replaced with a new structure with very steep sloping sides (almost as steep as the walls).
There may be scope for one or two extra bedrooms possibly even with a bathroom or home office depending on how much space you have. Popular uses for a loft conversion include a teenage den, cinema room or home office.
Building Regulations In Hertfordshire, United Kingdom
Because loft conversions will always need approval under building regulations (irrespective of whether they need planning permission) it pays to adopt the full plans application approach and have a detailed scheme approved before you approach a builder. The building regulations requirements for fire precautions in two storey housing are quite simple, it's only when you have more storeys that things can get complex.
Homes in conservation areas will generally have restricted permitted development rights.
