The opportunity to create more space

The clients desire was to and add a bedroom with an en-suite. This required the addition of a flat roof dormer and a change in the boiler from a combination boiler to a system boiler. Touchstone Lofts achieved this with ease for our Hearnville Road client.

How we can achieve a conversion like this for your home

Moving home these days is not easy neither is it cheap.  Finding the right property, then paying all the fees associated with the move including stamp duty, legal fees, estate agent fees, the list goes on.  A loft conversion that is done well, is an easy return on investment, you get to stay where you are and get more room.

This growing family required bigger rooms for the children so, our client were having to move into the loft.  The addition of one more en-suite would render the old and tired boiler to the skip.  A new system boiler with an unvented cylinder would be required to service three bathrooms.  Being gas registered allowed Touchstone Lofts to carry out the system change themselves.

The loft conversion plans were drawn up by the architect and the customer approved the layouts and designs.

The structural engineer produced the structural plans and the loft team arrived on site with the scaffold erected to the front and rear.  The scaffold enabled most of the works to be completed with minimal disturbance to the family living space.

The client wanted simple but designer radiators, recessed downlighters and various areas of storage.  For the en-suite the brief was a quality bath with shower over, a wall mounted toilet and wall fixed basin.  The tiles were an off-white shade.

The windows fitted were Velux on the roof slopes that we added blinds to, and for the dormer and the front gable we had hardwood sash and casement windows to match the existing.  These were custom-made for the client.

The loft was painted an off-white colour and together with the windows the light flooded in to make a very airy, modern, comfortable and relaxing master suite.
