Maximising your space

When it comes to planning your self-build, maximising space is a key factor to consider. Have you ever thought about using your roof to create an extra bedroom, home office or playroom?

Room in the roof type trusses are becoming increasingly popular, as they are the most economical solution to adding rooms to your new home. They also expand living space without changing the footprint of your home and can increase the value of your home by £15,000 to £20,000.

The two most common methods for building a roof are ‘cut’ and ‘truss’ roof timbers. Truss roofs are the most cost-effective option as they arrive pre-fabricated and can be quickly installed. Plus, it eliminates the majority of cutting in and lining associated with traditional roof construction.
