Loft Conversion Floor Plan – Planning Your New Space

Loft conversion floor plan; this is essential to getting the loft conversion you want for your house, and that conforms to building and safety regulations. Completing a floor plan is not a simple task and getting it wrong could mean the end of your conversion project. Understanding what it involves aids you in understanding why you need professional floor plans.

Any floor plans for conversions and extensions within a residential house needs to begin with a measurement survey. This provides a true representation of the dimensions of the space and its potential for conversion. Floor plans don’t just stop at the floor, they also include cross section details of the room, including the pitch and height of the roof. The positioning of load-bearing structures, roof joists, and beams are all also taken into consideration. As well as measuring the space, loft conversion plans need to include a structural survey to ensure that the house can take the weight of the loft conversion. Once all of this is complete, you can work with your architect on designing the new space for its intended purpose. Your professional should be able to advise you on whether your house extension plans are viable, and the changes that will be required to meet building regulations. The results of the measurements and survey may mean making amendments to your original plans. The need for ventilation and light may require you to make changes to the roof space or design that you had not factored into your budget. Similarly, the need for a fixed staircase, if you are planning to use the loft as a permanent living space, may mean that you need other modifications.
