Planning and Planning a Loft ConversionPlanning and Planning a Loft Conversion

With the right design, planning and budget a loft conversion can be an ideal way to add extra bedrooms or a home office. However, like any major work on your property it’s important to find a builder you can trust. It’s worth taking the time to do some research and look at examples of previous work. Many reputable companies will be happy to let you see photographs of completed loft conversions and speak with customers. Some will even arrange visits so you can get a better idea of their professionalism and quality.

What does loft conversion mean?

While a loft conversion typically doesn’t require planning permission* unless you’re raising the roofline or changing its structure, it will require building regulations approval. This ensures that the new floor will be structurally sound and that stairs are properly designed. In addition, it’s generally required that you install mains powered and interlinked smoke alarms on every floor of the house including the loft.

The most common type of loft conversion is a simple flat roof dormer. Suitable for most properties, this type of loft conversion enables you to increase the ceiling height within your loft and create space for a new staircase.

Across the country, interest in the therapeutic benefits of psilocybin mushrooms is growing alongside a “wild west” of dispensaries.

Like the city’s cannabis stores, Magic Mush offers dried psilocybin mushrooms and other mushroom-infused products. Customers are required to present identification and sign a waiver. They’re also required to take a minimum of 25 milligrams of a psilocybin capsule, known as a microdose. Those who want to buy larger doses are asked to provide documentation from a medical professional that they have a condition that can be treated with psilocybin.

The city says it doesn’t have the power to shut down Magic Mush or other shops selling the drug, which is still illegal under Canada’s Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. However, the shops are thriving as Toronto residents look for alternative ways to help treat mental health issues.

Psychedelic mushrooms are considered a natural way to treat a wide range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety and PTSD. Psilocybin mushrooms are believed to reduce symptoms by reducing anxiety, promoting neuroplasticity and altering patterns of thinking and perception. While the effects are typically short-lived, they can be profoundly healing for some people. Psychedelic users have reported the undoing of years of trauma, breaking down shackles of fear and enabling deep self-reflection.
