Our step by step process for Loft Conversion in Cockfosters
We try to keep the Loft Conversion process as simple as possible from conception to completion, always keeping you informed and involved in every step. Our process includes an initial survey and design followed by architectural drawings and structural calculations. Thereafter, we will quote based on the drawings. Once happy with our quote, our architects apply for planning permission and commence your building work and finally the completion of your new loft conversion. Our team is ready to discuss any aspect of the project in more detail at all times.
Whether your family is growing, renting out a room in your property, or simply want a new study or office, a loft conversion is an ideal solution to maximise space in your house. This is a cost-effective alternative to moving and will increase the value of your property when you decide to sell in the future. No matter the project size, we will build you a loft that reflects your style and meets your lifestyle’s needs.
One of the most important factors in a loft conversion in cockfosters is where you put the stairs. It is important to have enough headroom so that you can walk around the converted loft without stumbling or tripping over them. Also, consider where you'll put the doors. If you want a soundproofed space, you should install doors at both the top and bottom of the stairs.
The first step in a loft conversion in Cockfosters is to determine where you'd like the stairs to go. Whether they'll go at the front or the back will depend on where you want them to go. Before making this decision, you must consider where they'll fit into the overall layout of the loft. It's important to keep in mind that a staircase at either end may interfere with pipes and cables, so it's important to check before you begin. Another way to create a single continuous stairway is to build the stairs over existing stairs. However, this is likely to raise structural concerns and may require cutting extra headroom.
The second consideration is where the stairs will be placed. The best location is on the top and bottom steps. The landing is the most common place to put a door in a loft conversion in cockfosters. It will provide a good amount of light in the converted loft, and you can avoid a space-hogging landing enclosure. Alternatively, you can place the door at the bottom of the stairs. This will save you space on the landing, but this may compromise the light in the new room.
