How can I Convert my Loft with a Low Head Height?
Solution 1: Raise the Roof
- This would involve removing part or whole of the existing roof, and rebuilding it to give the required height and structure. This is structurally feasible, but the contributing factors are: cost and getting planning permission approval.
Solution 2: Lower the Ceiling in the Rooms Below
- The ceiling height in some rooms in older properties may be 3m or more. If the roof space height is limited there is the option of lowering the ceilings below, providing it still allows at least 2.4m.
