Planning Permission For Loft Conversions Luton Loft Conversions
Have you considered that you are going to need planning permission if you are altering the roof height or shape (which may be the case if you have to raise it for headroom).
If you opt to lay flooring boards over the existing joists in the loft space, you might need a building regulations application to building control. Building regulations are there to make sure that any work done by Loft Conversions Luton is structurally sound, that any new room is fire safe and that sound is reasonably insulated between the loft and the rooms below.
