Bride Street, N7
The opportunity to create more space
A very interesting and complex loft conversion which required some serious structural works. A double dormer which is a two-storey dormer loft conversion.
How we can achieve a conversion like this for your home
The customer, Mr Rodrigues, wanted to maximise his available space. The surveyor came up with an ingenious scheme to add a wonderful master suite to the top conversion and another bedroom with another en-suite on the first floor.
The client was most impressed with this unique design and a fixed price contract was agreed.
This was a considered a permitted development so a letter of lawful development was gained for the client.
The architect prepared the architectural plans for the client and the structural engineer prepared the drawings for the construction team.
In addition, we added another en-suite to the first floor bedroom taking the whole property to a total number of three en-suite rooms. A new system boiler and horizontal unvented cylinder was installed in the eaves of the top loft conversion.
A covered scaffold was required to prevent any rain coming into the property, this was a big job and the roof would be off for a while.
As we worked from the scaffold the inconvenience was limited for the customer and they continued to occupy the home while the worked progressed.
The client informed us that the increase in value of the property with the conversion has been 35%, one of the biggest increases we had seen recently with our loft conversions which normally average an increase of around 20 to 30%.
The client was delighted with the designs we had created and the overall increase in floor space was a welcome addition to the home.
