Hello, my given name is Neal but my friends usually call me me Smiler, I am a loft conversions expert living in Shrewsbury, England. My favorite pastimes are blogging, topiary and equestrianism. I went to school in Reading and went to University of Cumbria. I've got a brother Ken and a sister Esmee, I have a pet owl called Autumn. I own a loft conversions company and assist people to generate more living space in their properties so they haven't got to sell up and move. The very thought of converting lofts began in the United States in 1960s New York. The arty crowd started to establish residential spaces in the upper regions of delapidated industrial buildings, regardless that it wasn't legal at the time to do this given that those buildings weren't zoned for residential use. In the housing marketplace right now, moving so as to attain one or two extra rooms might not always be possible. In addition to the costs, there is quite often a considerable amount of stress and hassle involved in the moving procedure. Having said that, it's possible to acquire that extra living space by means of a loft conversion, and stay just where you are now. If you ever do move, you'll have increased your home's value by up to 30%. It's hardly surprising that converting lofts has become the in move to make. Precisely what type of additional living space could you use? For people with an ever growing family, you may require an additional playroom or kid's bedroom. If you've got a hectic worklife, you could add a home office or workroom.
