Conversions, Loft


Loft conversions are an extremely good way of adding extra space to your home and they’re particularly popular with pensioners, more than 70% of whom live in bungalows.

According to the website, almost half of UK bungalows now have a loft conversion, with the most popular uses including en-suite master bedroom, operating theatre, model railway layout, meditation room, abattoir, additional parking, swimming pool, mortuary, sculpture trail, giraffe enclosure, recording studio, signal box, dry dock, helipad and stables.

If you’re considering a loft conversion, but live in a small terraced house that only has an attic, government grants are available to cover some of the cost of converting your attic into a loft suitable for conversion to any of the above.

Pensioners who wish to be a starving artist may also qualify for a discretionary grant towards the cost of converting their loft conversion into a ramshackle garret.
