The client’s children were growing up fast, so they wanted extra space for themselves. They required the Loft conversion to be started as soon as all the relevant permissions were obtained.
A hip to gable construction was the best design for this property in order to give the client the maximum amount of space in the loft conversion. This was recommended due to the existing height within the loft, together with the wider than average width of the property.
The work had to be completed as soon as possible so as the loft conversion could be transformed into new living space for the family.
Our client wanted the loft conversion for a number of reasons; the lady of the house wanted a large luxurious bedroom with lots of light, folding glass doors and ample wardrobe space. The man of the house wanted a ceiling mounted TV screen so he could watch TV in bed.
They recently had the brickwork sand blasted and re-pointed to bring back the original colour of the London stock bricks to the outside of their house. It was important to them that the gable end matched the cleaned brickwork. We were able to achieve this with careful matching of new imperial sized bricks.
Absolute Lofts completed the project within approximately 12 weeks.
“Within 12 weeks we had a surprisingly large loft bedroom for a semi detached. We’re really pleased with the results and it looks as though it is an original part of the house. Absolute lofts were helpful, polite and professional throughout and were very conscious of our children running around and making sure the house was safe when they left in the evening.”
