Maximising Property Space with Attic Conversion in Rozelle

Attic Conversion

Converting an attic into additional storage or a functional living space is one of the best transformative efforts you can do to a property. 

Many homeowners underestimate the value that lies in this often-overlooked area. With a well-executed attic conversion in Rozelle, this area in your house can be an integral extension of your living spaces, offering versatility and increasing the overall appeal of your property.

The Process of Attic Conversion

  • Planning

The initial stage involves envisioning the purpose and layout of the attic space. Consider factors such as the desired functionality, accessibility, and any specific features you imagine. 

Determine the budget, taking into account potential costs for insulation, ventilation, flooring, and other essentials. You must also assess the structural integrity of the attic, ensuring it can support the intended use.

  • Design

With a clear vision in mind, the next step is to create a detailed design plan. This includes floor plans, electrical layouts, and any structural modifications. 

You must plan where you want to place your windows or skylights, as well as your storage solutions. 

  • Council (DA) Approval:

Before any physical work can begin, obtaining Development Approval (DA) from the local council is essential. This process involves submitting your design plans to the relevant authorities for assessment. 

It ensures your project complies with zoning regulations, building codes, and other local requirements. 

  • Building

Once you have obtained the necessary approvals, the construction phase of your attic conversion in Rozelle can commence. This involves executing the design plan. 

Skilled builders and tradespeople bring the design to life, ensuring all work is conducted to meet the highest quality standards.

Is attic conversion worth the investment?

Adding an extra habitable room (or two) such as bedroom, ensuite or bathroom to your home, with a well-executed attic conversion, can add almost 20 per cent to its market value. Even more if you live inner Sydney where space is limited and property value is high. Plus, it’s easier than adding an extra storey or extension.

FAQs

  • Can I still live in my home?

    Absolutely! We are able to work in a manner that causes minimal disruption to your home. 90% of the time our installers will be in the roof space.

    Attic Room projects are usually accessed through the roof via a scaffold. We don’t even need to enter your home until the project is almost completed (to install the attic ladder or fixed staircase).

    Our installers all carry vacuums/drop sheets to ensure the space is left tidy at the end of each day.

  • Do I need DA approval?

    Generally, no!   For storage solutions and attic rooms, our works are confined to the existing parameters of the property and because we do not alter the roofline of the house we are able to avoid the timely and costly process of a Development Application.

  • How long does it take?

    Basic storage is generally completed within a day or two. Dust proof storage rooms tend to take between three to five days depending on size and our Attic Rooms can take between 3-5 weeks.  Every home is different, but we can usually give a good estimate on timing at the first enquiry stage.
