Yellow London Stock Bricks 4/5/2016
As mentioned in our previous blog, when extending or converting a loft space into a mansard, there are certain conservation / council regulations that need to be followed. Firstly, known as enclosure, if you are using a previous parapet wall to have your mansard encased by, you need to share the expense with the neighbour, saving you both money on developing the entire wall yourself. Secondly, the parapet wall needs to be built from Yellow London Stock Bricks, these traditional London bricks fit in with the local aesthetics, keeping the fascia or "image" of London persistent. Up close and personal, they really identify your London property keeping a traditional yet innovative design.
