Loft Conversion From Colchester




Loft Conversion

This was a major undertaking, it was a roof with a small loft conversion already in and it gave an added bedroom however
 more space was needed. so the house went from looking like this.......

View from the front.


A you can see the original loft conversion was plain an simple.

To gain what was wanted the roof needed some fundamental changes made to it, it needed to go from a
four sided pitch to a two sided pitch with gable ends. Making that change from four to two makes a big
difference on the area that can be used.

The old roof was deconstructed from right to left looking from the front as you can see
Once so far along the new construction began

The pictures show just how much work is involved in such projects, as its an awful lot! and coupled with the
time it takes to complete its certainly not for the faint hearted.

Once the rafters are all in place the dormers are constructed.
Jumping on a little further with the roof constructed and the dormers all in place, covering the roof and
dormers in felt and battoning for the tiles.
Once at this stage the worst is far behind, and now showing just how much of a transformation the property has undergone.
As the tiles were put on it only got better.
 
Original plan was to tile the dormers the same as the roof, however,
 life is flux and a different finish was decided on.
Finished in black Hardi plank it gave wooden plank look and works very well.

The piste de resistance is the gargoyles adorned on the dormers, wonderful.
This conversion took several months from start to finish, and although not privy to the all of the costs
i would say around £40k wouldn't be too far out and maybe a little under.
This one was defiantly a Don't Move, Improve!
as it added value to the property with its size and quality.

 A Loft Conversion is the way of transforming an unused loft / attic space into habitable living space.

Typical Loft Conversions are for Bedrooms, Bathrooms or even Office Space / Study. The installation of a loft conversion is a complex
task with a large amount of work involved and yet it is one of the most poular major home improvements in the uk.

Converting your loft is a more cost effective
way to gain space over an extension and is far less stress than moving home or having an extension.

The First thing for a Loft Conversion is to check its feasability with the space you have in the loft, an ideal minimum central height of 2.3m to give headroom in the finished space.

The two main types of loft conversion are,

Roof Light (Velux Windows) or a Dormer Construction and in some cases both are installed.

Roof windows take less work & cost to install than dormers and can be very attractive when light is more important than space, also where dormers
may not be allowed by planning.

Dormer style Loft Conversions add extra headroom in a loft and can give
better access for the staircase. Also with a Dormer Loft Conversion it can add asthetic value to a property.
