Here we have a mansard conversion. It has one large bedroom, with a shower room. With the mansard we built up the side party walls using recycled London Stock bricks.
It allows the full width of your home to be utilised and, these bricks match in well with the existing property as the bricks are already weathered and old.
Mansards are accepted by some councils via planning permission and some others won't, we will let you know what you local council's planning requirements are. The mansard is an attractive addition to most Edwardian and Victoria houses, as they have a rear 70 degree angle rear slope. Another option here might have been a Juliet balcony from floor to ceiling with twin doors to fling open on those precious hot summer days which we value so much - when they happen.
