The opportunity to create more space
The client, Patrick Barnes, wanted a bedroom with dressing area, a bathroom, a rear terrace and a storage area to the end of the terrace
How we can achieve a conversion like this for your home
The client had already got planning permission. The surveyor viewed the plans and existing loft space and came up with a detailed fixed price quotation. The existing boiler also needed to be replaced with a system boiler and an unvented cylinder. Touchstone Lofts were able to carry this out as part of the loft conversion project.
We re-designed the stairs and the internal layouts to improve and make the loft conversion work better, with added rooflights and windows.
To the front elevation we fitted four large Velux rooflights, three for the bedroom and one for the dressing room.
We also added the step-down into bathroom design from the bedroom.
The bathroom had a walk-in shower, toilet and basin.
Our architect produced detailed drawings for the customer to agree and the variations were sent to the planning department for planning approval. Planning permission was granted eight weeks later.
The structural engineer then prepared detailed structural plans for the construction team. Once the scaffolding was erected on the front and rear elevations, the works began.
A large bedroom with en-suite, and a dressing room was created. Also, there was a walk on terrace which also had a storage area at the far end of the roof.
The terrace roof was re-enforced with steel to take the weight required for building regulations.
The dormer was clad in Spanish slate and the bedroom had a large hardwood glass Juliette Balcony.
The final result was exceptional, we had created a whole new floor of additional accommodation for the delighted customer.
Patrick Barnes, the client, recommended us to a number of local residents where we also undertook more loft conversion works.
