A TRUE LOFT, or HARD LOFT, is usually a conversion of an older factory or warehouse building. The term "hard" comes from having a harder edge of either concrete construction, or exposed brick and original wood posts, beams and floors. Here, the authentic details and atmosphere are everything.
Ceilings height should be at least 10feet high - and the higher the better. This is increasingly very important for loft purchasers, as developers are now building condos with slightly higher ceilings than in the past. It is this ceiling height that helps give a hard loft the feeling of air and space. Larger windows and open concept layouts also help. Ceilings are unfinished and pipes and heating ducts are exposed.
The other great thing about lofts is that many of them are zoned LIVE/WORK, which makes it easier to operate a business out of your home. As a tax write off, it will be much more straight forward for your accountant and for Revenue Canada.
