A mansard loft conversion provides a smart solution for adding living space to your home. There are several options available in terms of how an attic extension is achieved structurally, including dormer windows, hip-to-gable additions and mansard extensions. 

The loft conversion route you choose will depend largely on the features of your existing house and planning guidelines in the local area.
