Mezzanine sleeping area in loft space
This question relates to the question below about tandem/backyard development.
The ceiling height in the cottage is 247cm. I would like to build a mezzanine sleeping area which would be accessed from the living room and sit above what is currently the bedroom. How do rules about stairs and loft access relate to mezzanine areas? And would there be any issue with fire regulations given that it’s a bungalow?
The loft area is small and the height is perhaps 165cm at the highest point. Because the living room is small, any regulation about width of stairs / head room and distance from doors would be difficult to meet. The living room is 4.31 x 2.77m.
