Stevenage is a large town in Hertfordshire, a county just north of London. Located east of junctions 7 and 8 of the A1, Stevenage is nestled between the towns of Letchworth Garden City and Welwyn Garden City. In 1946, Stevenage was designated as one of the country's first New Towns. It is a popular tourist destination and is known for its arts and culture.
The history of Stevenage started in Roman times, when the area was a quiet backwater. As a small town along the Great North Road, it has been growing ever since. Visitors can explore Stevenage's Roman heritage at Six Hills, a 2,000-year-old burial ground. Its arts and culture scene is rich and vibrant, with a wide range of festivals and concerts throughout the year. To help residents celebrate their diverse cultural heritage, the town hosts many public and private events throughout the year.
A contemporary LOFT conversion in Stevenage is a wonderful way to add extra living space to your home, and can provide plenty of added space. Many homes have converted their lofts into an airy master bedroom, or a functional living area. You can even choose to forgo double-glazed windows and install skylights to make the space feel more spacious. Another great idea is to install soundproofing to keep out noise pollution. For example, one resident in Stevenage used his converted loft as a recording studio.
Before starting your conversion in Stevenage, you will want to make sure that you have the appropriate height for the conversion. The ceiling should be around two metres at mid-point, but this is not compulsory for conversions in Stevenage. The minimum height for a room depends on whether you plan to have access or stairs. If this is the case, you can work around the height issue by lowering the ceiling in the room below. In this case, you will have to build a new floor in the loft
The most common loft conversions are done on these types of houses across London. These houses mostly have high ceilings and large rooms and a conversion works best when the design retains the natural character of the building.
If you live in an end of terraced or semi-detached house, your property is ideal for a loft conversion. There are two main types of loft conversion that are suitable for semi-detached and end of terrace homes: hip to gable loft conversions and dormer loft conversions.
Many properties in the UK were build in the 1920s or 1930s (pre-war period). Such houses are great for loft conversions, you can easily add either a dormer loft conversion, a hip to gable loft conversion or a Velux loft conversion. The type we build will depend on the structure of your home and roof we can guide you on the best approach.
If you happen to live in a conservation area, the local council may not permit you to have a rear dormer, but they might let you have a mansard or a combination of Velux roof windows and small dormers. Loft conversions in flats and Maisonettes are the ultimate way of gaining that precious extra space.
