No residential building can be represented without the presence of an attic – the room under the roof. But the dimensions of the attic depend on its functional. Typically, the auxiliary space under the roof is used as a pantry for storing old things, which, as a rule, are not used, and they are not dared to throw them away. Here, in the attics, sometimes they dry linen in bad weather.
But recently, attic floors are increasingly used as an additional living area. Therefore, the requirements for the rooms under the roof are presented are several different than the usual attics. And they call these additional rooms attic.
The idea of attic overlap arose in the 17th century in France. These half -life, semi -auxiliary premises have gained great popularity among the bohemian stratum of the population.
Domestic inhabitants are building on attics in order to equip bedrooms or recreation areas there (for example, arrange a billiard room). The living attic does not imply special difficulties in execution. Therefore, you can easily give you the attic with your own hands. The scheme of its installation, in principle, is no different from the installation of an ordinary attic.
Unless there will be additional requirements for the rafter system of ceilings. Since there will be inhabited rooms under the roof, the rafters should be more reliable and durable. After all, the system will withstand not only the load of snow lying on the roof, but also the weight of a more insulated roof. Since the attic uses a more complex roofing system for the attic due to additional insulation and waterproofing.
But before proceeding with the construction of the attic, one should take into account the features of the entire building as a whole. Will the design features withstand additional load? Only specialists-designers will be able to answer this question. And only after consultation, you can safely choose the types of attics and roofing cake, the interior of the room and order the material necessary for construction.
