Attic style homes are known for their versatility and adaptability, but how do you know if they’re the best choice for your new home, lifestyle and family?
In this blog post, we will highlight and discuss 3 reasons why an attic style home might be right for you.
You need extra space — Adding an attic is a cost-effective way to add space to your home without additional land space. Perfect for knockdown and rebuild projects where building space is fixed or any building project with tight boundaries and overlooking problems. You can add an extra master bedroom, a suite, a parents’ retreat, in-home theatre, activity or games room for your children without taking up valuable space in your home — the possibilities are truly endless!
With space at a premium, it’s important to make the most of your land space — build up instead of across!
You love the look — It is essential to love the styling of your own home. Attic homes are popular among homebuyers as they have great aesthetic allure. The style employs beautiful triangle features in the roofline instead of the modern square box look, as seen on many double-storey builds. This subtle change adds volume and dimension to the house without looking bulky or boxy and allows you to retain the same amount of space.
You want a view — The inclusion of an attic space allows you to take full advantage of the previously hidden view that can only be revealed with the height an attic adds to your home. Capture your neighbourhood from a vantage point that cannot be seen from the lower floor and enjoy everything your home has to offer. An attic extension tends to be a cost-effective and preferred way for homebuyers to circumvent the need to build an entire second floor which can be draining, both emotionally and economically.
