Victorian & Edwardian

Probably the most common loft conversions happen on these types of houses. Check the options here and you will find something similar to what you require for your conversion. You could say that it was the Victorians and Edwardians who built the capital, and they built quite a range of houses Some have cavernous rooms and high ceilings whilst others have been carved into tiny flats. What most of them have is character, which is why we are often more fond of them than we are of later developments. Usually you will want to keep that character (and so might the local council!) and there are often a lot of options to choose from.
