What you should consider while planning a loft conversion in Chiswick?
The first move is to convert your loft to fit. The inner height of the new loft from the top of the ceiling joist to the apex under the ridge board is the most important – at the highest level, at a total of 2.3 m. The other most critical thing is that the roof pitch-normally ideal is a 30-degree pitch or greater. The third factor to remember is the approximate size of the loft room-the total distance between the inner walls will be 5.50 m from side to side and 7.50 m from front to back.

The rules which apply depend on the conversion form you have.
