Loft design instruction:

EMLA Construction Ltd were recommended to the client for this loft design by an independent third party.

Client:

Professional couple with two children who stayed in residence for the project duration.

Property:

1960s 'Mock Tudor' detached house.

Location:

Loft design in Gomshall near Guildford Surrey.

Project duration: Four months.

Financial: Completed to budget.

 

Description of work:

Full architectural drawings of the loft design gained planning consent for the entire attic space to be converted into:

• 1 Master bedroom

• 2 Guest bedrooms

• 1 Full sized family bathroom

• Extra eaves storage

Work began by stripping out and replacing the existing load bearing structure of the loft with a new design to maximise living space. New Dormers were constructed on both the front and rear elevations of the roof. The whole loft space was completely insulated and fire proofed

 

to meet building regulations.

The existing landing was re-modelled to allow the installation of a new feature staircase to give access to the loft without losing first floor living space.

Full electrical wiring, heating and plumbing were installed in the new loft space, together with bathroom fixtures and fittings. Plastering, tiling, painting and decorating of the loft were also completed throughout.

Bespoke windows for the new Dormers were commissioned and installed to match the rest of the house. New internal doors, fixtures and fittings were also installed.

 

The demands of the additional loft accommodation and facilities required alterations and improvements be made to the existing wiring and heating systems of the house.

This work was carried out by EMLA and included the complete re-routing of the cold water supply for both central heating and hot water systems, as well as the creation of a 'Service room' to house water tanks and pumps in the new loft space.

The client was very satisfied with the work, giving EMLA glowing references and asking us back to do further work. More photos
