Hi, I am Evan but everyone calls me Ladder, I am a loft conversion professional living in Oxford, UK. My interests are philately, ghost hunting and weightlifting. I grew up in in Truro and I went to The Arts University Bournemouth. I’ve got a brother Leandro and a sister Esha, I’ve a pet pig called Jake. I operate a loft conversions company and like to help people create additional space in their homes so they haven’t got to move.
In the world today the price of houses are continually escalating and it isn’t everybody that can actually find the money to move home when the time arises. It is not simply the house prices which affect this, but in addition the cost of moving house, which can be outrageously expensive in recent years. Nevertheless moving is not the sole solution open to you when your family is outgrowing your existing home.
A quite expensive option is to add an extension to your current home to gain that extra room, but you might not get the necessary planning permission, and your property might not be suitable. Another possibility is a garage conversion, which would be much cheaper but relies on you actually having a garage and not needing it for parking your car. An outstanding answer which can increase the value of your house without adding to the property footprint, is to convert your loft.
In the last decade, for the reasons mentioned above, loft conversions have gotten more and more popular. It is recommended, before you take the plunge, that you verify whether your house is in fact suited to a loft conversion. Homes that have trussed roofs are not really suitable. The ideal houses for loft conversions are older homes, especially those built prior to the 1970’s.
