Hip To Gable Conversion

Hip to Gable conversions are popular among Milton Keynes homeowners with semi-detached or detached properties, end of terraces, and bungalows. The existing sloping roof is turned into a flat gable to increase available space. Depending on various factors, a hip to gable extension may or may not require planning permission. We can help you with this and apply on your behalf.

Dormer Conversion

Dormer loft conversions are the most common type requested by Milton Keynes residents. With a dormer conversion we extend the existing roof vertically to create extra floor space and headroom. To achieve this, it is important that at least half of the current floor space has a ceiling height of at least two metres or higher. Dormers usually do not require planning permission.

Velux Conversion

A Velux, or roof light loft conversion in Milton Keynes is the most simple and economical type available. With a Velux, the roof remains unchanged, other than the installation of attractive flush Velux windows to give plenty of natural light. Typically, a Velux attic conversion does not need planning permission as the roof structure remains unchanged. This is the perfect solution if you want minimal outlay and disruption.

Touchstone Loft Conversions 

As a Milton Keynes homeowner, deciding on an important home improvement such as a loft conversion is a major step. But it is certainly worth considering as transforming your attic will not only give you more space, it will also increase the value of your property quite considerably.

Converting a loft is not a small job, and it requires skilled professionals to plan, engineer and finish the project to completely satisfy your expectations. Whether you want an extra bedroom (or two) a home office, or organised storage space, at Touchstone Lofts we have the expertise to complete the work to the highest standard.

 

Mansard, Hip to Gable, Dormer & Velux Conversions 

Because we specialise in loft conversions as opposed to general building, we can offer you any type of loft conversion from a simple Velux adaptation to the Rolls Royce of home extensions, a Mansard conversion. Whichever type you choose, you can be confident no part of the work is outsourced. We employ long-term inhouse staff only, who are experts in their particular area of construction. This means we can confidently guarantee the highest quality of work to each and every one of our Milton Keynes customers.

A mansard conversion can be considered the Rolls Royce of loft conversions as it incorporates a new wall of 72 degrees, which from inside gives the feeling of being in a regular upright room as opposed to a sloped ceiling loft. A Mansard conversion is also very aesthetically appealing from the outside. The downside of this type of conversion is it usually requires planning permission.

Milton Keynes – The Town

Milton Keynes has a population of around 240,000 and is in the county of Buckinghamshire. It is a relatively new town, which was dreamed into existence during the 60s, one of several areas in South East England built to relieve housing congestion in London. A very well-planned town, and also one of the largest of the “British New Towns”, Milton Keynes has “stood the test of time far better than most of the new towns” according to Wikipedia thanks to advice from Californian urban theorist Melvin M. Webber who thought the concept of a town centre nucleus was outdated and that areas of the town should be arranged in a grid like fashion, and therefore easy to travel from one district to another by car.
His vision proved to be very far sighted as far as resident’s needs were concerned, and the grid like layout of Milton Keynes works very well in these days of e-commerce and advanced telecommunications.Milton Keynes boosts one of the largest covered shopping centres in the UK, with three miles of shopfronts and 230 stores.

Trains run every few minutes with a staggering total of around 133 trains going from Milton Keynes into London every day.

Housing in Milton Keynes is arranged in segments, with an equal mix of starter homes, family-size multi bedroom houses and small retirement flats in each section. This creates a diverse but even range of age groups, family sizes and incomes in each grid section of the town.

Most of the properties in Milton Keynes were built in the 1960’s, and as a result most homes comprise trussed roof construction. This type of loft conversion is a speciality of Touchstone lofts, and we are very experienced in trussed roof conversions having completed may loft conversions in terraced, semi-detached and detached properties in Milton Keynes.
