Smallwood Road, SW17
The opportunity to create more space
A simple rear flat roof dormer with a shower room en-suite was the requirement for this client. Smallwood Road in Tooting is comprised mainly of Victorian terraces that are apt for loft conversions as the loft space is so large.
How we can achieve a conversion like this for your home
Tooting is a popular area in London for families and a Victorian terrace is an ideal property type for a family who need to room for growing children.
The surveyor met with the client who was keen to press on with a baby due within a few months.
A competitive price for a high-quality loft conversion was agreed and a fixed price contract signed.
All the specification was agreed at the outset so the project could speed long without any delays.
A reasonable proportion of the loft conversions we do are due to the arrival of a new baby, couples are keen to adjust the home to accommodate the new family member. A loft conversion in Tooting is a great way to add a bedroom and en-suite to your home at a fraction of the cost of moving to a bigger home.
We took care of the whole process from the drawings and designs to arranging planning by applying for a letter of lawful development, ensuring the conversion is fully legal. We also arranged all the building regulations with three visits from the building regulation officer booked in so he could check all the works were carried out to current building regulation standards. A certificate was issued upon completion of the loft conversion.
We took care of all the project management ensuring all the ancillary trades came in at the right time to do their fixing and making sure the building team were on top of the conversion when the scaffolding is arranged etc.
The other trades employed on this contract were the electricians, plumbers, scaffolders and carpenters.
We also arranged the decoration and fitted the wooden floors.
We came in on budget and on schedule – in time for the birth of the new baby.
