Although a terrace house offers little opportunity for outward extension, it can be extended upwards.
With the building’s shell already in place, a loft conversion is a comparatively inexpensive project – a fairly straightforward process that often provides the ideal solution to space problems.
A loft conversion isn’t only for terrace houses. Even home owners who have plenty of space to the side or back of their property will often choose to convert roof space into living accommodation.
Subject to certain conditions, a loft conversion is usually considered to be permitted development, and, in many cases, planning permission is not required.
