Good conversions cost money too, but they are also a sure-fire way of not only dramatically improving the quality of your living space, but also considerably increasing the value of your property. By rethinking layout, converting redundant space or expanding up, down or out, you can make the most of basements, cellars, attics and garages to suit your changing lifestyle and needs, without spending a fortune moving. Converted has all the practical information you'll need, from dealing with budgets and schedules to tackling legal issues, as well as ideas and inspiration for making the most of your valuable space. With separate chapters looking at lofts, basements, side and rear extensions, and outbuilding conversions, plus individual case studies showing various schemes in practice."@en ;
