Many have decided that staying and improving their existing home makes sense when comparing with moving to a new one. A loft can make for great organised storage space or extra space.
Buying versus moving
Buying a new home would be more expensive and a much greater hassle. This would saving them on stamp duty, and also on legal and mortgage fees and moving costs. The main argument being that the new property would need work and improvements and development too. So you may want to stay put and renovate or redecorate and redesign a part of your property like your loft.
Building and recycling
Building a loft conversion can be used to reuse and recycle or resold. This reduces your carbon footprint and can prove to be very cost effective. Old floorboards, doors, radiators can be reused, cleaned up and given a new finish. What you cant sell or reuse , you can try to sell . So emptying out your loft, classifying what you need , what to throw away and recycle and what to sell can be rewarding.

Live and let live
When your house is being renovated (with a nice aquarium fish tank setup) or converted or an extension is being carried out it can mean a disruption in the lives of the inhabitants of the house. Extensions in genral involve building in the outer space and garden area. Not everyone wants to sacrifice these. For such people a loft conversion adds space but does not involve building over the garden. The only space redesigned and moved is the space required to accommodate access by putting in a new staircase. A project involving the redesigning and reworking the loft area typically takes four to six weeks to complete. This is also usually possible to do while the family continues living in your home while the loft itself is being converted. Entire House North London is a contractor that is an expert at such renovations.
