With a new attic or a roof lift, you can bring more living space into your existing house. A new penthouse can be built as a single storey in the form of an entire floor plan or by raising the roof and adding an extension.

The most common is to add a floor to a one-story house, but there are really no obstacles for you to arrange other solutions.

The latter option is usually recommended.
