Attic Bedroom Conversions
This falls under the Habitable attic room category and therefore will require council approval. Staircases leading into the room need to comply with the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and it is compulsory to install windows for ventilation. Staircases can range from the simplest series of straight steps to multiple flights, some in quite grand arrangements. Stairs can take up a lot of space so the major factor in its design is often the area available. As for windows, we find that dorma windows in particular suit the attic space and is also aesthetically pleasing from the outside of the house.
We will work with you to find the best fit to suit your needs and if there is enough space and budget, you can incorporate an ensuite as well.
There’s usually a lot of opportunity here to build interestingly shaped bookshelves and low doors in the walls behind which are wonderful storage areas.
