An attic is an attic space in a private house, converted into living rooms. Its main feature is its irregular shape with sloping walls and ceiling. Modern designers have managed to turn such a disadvantage into an advantage. More and more people are abandoning an unnecessary attic, preferring to use the space under the roof with benefit. Now the project of a house with an attic is a popular solution for suburban and summer cottages. Even in the old Kyiv Khrushchev houses, the attic is equipped with a room on the roof. Thus, the living space increases, each meter of the dwelling is used to the benefit of the owners.
The project of a house with an attic is a profitable solution for any type of building, whether it is a country house, hunting, fishing house or a luxurious country mansion near Kyiv. If earlier it was almost impossible to live in the attic (it is hot in summer and cold in winter), then modern technologies will make it possible to make such a room comfortable and cozy at any time of the year. Insulation, lightweight roofing materials and waterproofing systems make the room under the roof as comfortable as possible.
Advantages of the attic:
the building is lighter than a full-fledged floor, therefore it exerts less load on the walls, ceiling and foundation of the first floor;
attic projects in a modern style, as in numerous photos, allow you to equip a functional and cozy room (bedroom, study, children's room, living room);
equipping an attic is much easier and faster than building a full-fledged second floor;
building an attic is cheaper. Due to the sloping ceilings, the space is reduced, which means that fewer finishing materials are needed to decorate the walls and ceiling;
another advantage is savings in winter, because heating a small attic room is not expensive.
Projects of residential buildings with an attic are varied. The dimensions, shape, type of roof, stylistic direction of the interior, the presence of a garage or utility rooms depend on the personal wishes of the owners.
