Here we have a mansard conversion. With the mansard we built up the side party walls using recycled London Stock bricks.
This allows the full width of your home to be utilised and, these bricks match in well with the existing property as the bricks are already weathered and old. Mansards are accepted by some councils via planning permission and some others won't, we will let you know what you local council's planning requirements are. The mansard is an attractive addition to most Edwardian and Victoria houses, as they have a rear 70 degree angle slope and the windows and French doors extend out vertically with lead cladding, this makes a nice feature to the conversion.
