Increasing roof height/pitch?
We are buying a 100 year old house with a large extension built on the back of the original house. The extension has a separate roof that is lower than that of the original house. The extension houses the kitchen, bathroom, and storage downstairs. Upstairs it has an attic and connects to the master bedroom through a little door. It's perfectly situated with realtion to plumbing to put a second (half) bathroom in the space. Problem: at it's tallest, the roof is about 6'1". My husband is 6'2", so we need just a few more inches to be able to use the space for a bathroom. Any suggestions? Thanks!
husbands come in all shapes and sizes - yopu could consider trading this one in...
Ort you have get a local archy or contractor to offer an opinion about how hard it might be to renovate and get the space you need.
Other considerations might be local ordinaces governing height and historic districting regarding changes to old structures.
