Job: Convert a section of the roof space of this home into a functional storage area, giving the owners maximum usage space.
Location: Forest Lake, Qld 4078
One of the most common questions we are asked is – How much height do I need in my roof for it to be used for storage? The photos taken of this Forest Lake home and the almost complete dust proof storage room provides the perfect answer for those with this concern.
If you are needing storage only and the pitch of your roof looks like this:-
Then your roof is perfect for basic storage or it can even be converted into a functional dust proof storage room, as was the case here.
The owners of this Forest Lake home desperately required extra space. With the house situated on a 300m2 – 350m2 block, alternative solutions such as a shed or garage were not feasible options. This is a common issue for many homeowners located in the Brisbane and surrounding suburb areas. They love their homes and location, however they are lacking that extra bit of space they require. Whilst lack of storage and or extra space is a common issue, making use of the roof space is not often thought of, although we are pleased to say that the concept is becoming increasingly popular in South East Queensland.
These clients discovered the concept and our company through a Facebook advert that we were running at the time. They were immediately interested in the dust proof storage room option as they were after a storage solution that kept their belongings clean and vermin proof. Whilst the pitch of their roof only allowed for standing and walking in a slightly crouched over position, these clients were after storage, storage, storage, therefore this was not an issue for them. They simply wanted us to provide them with the most practical storage room, maximising the storage potential to its greatest, accessed by the safest, easiest to use attic ladder, in order for them to regularly access the stored belongings that were important to them. Needless to say they were more than happy with the completed project.
These clients now have an extra 20m2 of usable space within their home which is safely and comfortably accessed via the top of the range StairLadder Deluxe Attic Ladder. Tradies and even themselves can easily access the remainder of the roof space if required, through the access hatch door we installed. We also had our electrician install a powerpoint and a fluro light to complete the room.
Attic Storage is becoming increasingly popular in South East Queensland, with an array of options to suit most budgets.
