Boost your house’s value with an attic conversion
WHILE MOST HOUSES come with attics – not everybody makes the best use of them.
The idea of converting an area used to store the Christmas decorations into a liveable space is a bit daunting.
But for those willing to put in the time and effort, an attic conversion could seriously improve a house’s value and create extra living space.
Read on to find an answer to a question you may have:
Can any attic be converted into a liveable space?
I would say that 90% of them can. Some of them can’t because they would be too small. Some can be converted into bedrooms and some into storage.
How long can someone expect an attic conversion to take?
In general we would have the attic conversion complete in less then 2 weeks.
Is planning permission difficult to get?
A lot of conversions are for storage, while fewer of them would be converted for bedrooms. Now, attics converted to storage – most people would use them as a bedroom, but technically it isn’t classed as an extra room (so planning permission isn’t required).
You have to have two-thirds of the floor area 8 foot high for it to comply as a bedroom – which is really impossible for most attics around Dublin.
If you want to change the structure of the back of the house – with something like a dormer, you need to put in for planning permission.
So if you don’t change the shape of the roof – you’re ok?
Exactly. Then it is classified as storage. It is actually known as non-habitable quarters which means it is never classed as a living space.
Plenty of people would live there though?
Yes, it’s like if you went to buy a three-bedroom semi-detached house and the attic was done – there is a good chance you would buy that. You would be able to use the extra space as a bedroom.
Would an attic conversion add value to a home?
Most definitely. You would get your money back on a resale if not more. It is kind of like having an extension on your back. You’re obviously going to get a little bit more than without the extension on the back.
