Building & Refurbishment
If you are wanting to gain additional living space without altering the footprint of the building, a loft conversion is the way forward. These types of conversions range in complexity; from occupying the existing structure, to increasing the height, length and overall shape of the roof space.
Some projects can be done within the remits of permitted development, others will need full planning consent. All works though will be checked by a local building inspector to ensure that elements such as the structure, fire proofing, insulation, electrics and plumbing work are completed to regulations.
Key points to consider:
- Do you want to build in some dormers?
- Whether you want a gable or barn end roof?
- Upscaling your heating system to deal with any additional load of the radiators and particularly en-suites.
- To comply with fire regs, aspects such as the internal habitable doors will need to be 30 minute fire proofed, so may need to be changed.
An extension is a great way to get that large living area to better suit your lifestyle. As well as the extra space, it can add significant value to your home.
