Witham is a town located in the borough of Essex; it is 51 miles outside of central London. The name Witham is thought to originate from the old English “With” meaning curved bend and “ham” village homestead meaning village on a bend. Excavations by Essex County council archaeological unit discovered evidence of Neolithic occupation at Witham. Excavations in the 1970’s of the Witham Lodge area revealed remains of a Roman temple as well as a pottery kiln. This would have been alongside of the main Roman road from Colchester to London. Another notable find was a votive offering a pool in the ground of the temple, containing several artefacts that would have been offered to the Gods. In 913 Edward the Elder marched from Hertford to reconquer Essex and encamped in Witham on his route to set up base at Maldon. Witham’s Population as of the 2011 Census was 25,353.

The Witham loft you want to convert is a blank canvas, so you're able to create any atmosphere you like. We're happy to work with you on: - The colour scheme of your new home (we can even help you choose the paint if you'd like!) - The theme of your new space (for example, we have lots of beautiful vintage furniture which would be perfect for the 1950s or 1960s feel)
We're so happy you're considering a loft conversion! When it comes to where to place the windows for your new space in Witham, there are a few things to consider. First, how much natural light do you want? If you want to be able to see as much sunlight as possible, try placing your windows on the south or west sides of the room. If you'd like some privacy and don't mind being away from direct sunlight, try placing them on the north side of the room. Second, how big is your budget? You'll need more than one window if you have a large area—and those cost extra money. You might also have to consider adding skylights if your roof isn't already equipped with one. Third, what kind of view would you like? If you're looking for something scenic and calming (like waterfalls), then consider placing your windows on an east-facing wall where they will have access to morning sunrays coming through them.
Loft conversions are a great way to add extra space to your home. There are many different types of loft conversion, and the most popular is adding an additional bedroom. This can open up a whole new world of possibilities for you and your family. You could also convert your loft in Witham into an office or study if you need more space for work. This could be a great way to make sure that you always have somewhere quiet to work when you need it. Another option is adding a bathroom or wet room. This will give you another place in the house where everyone can get ready in the morning - and it will also give those with disabilities an accessible bathroom they can use at any time of day or night.
The type of Witham building you live in and the type of conversion you want to make will determine whether or not your loft needs structural strengthening. If you live in a timber-framed house (sometimes called a "timber frame"), then you'll probably need to strengthen the structure before making any changes to your loft. However, if your home doesn't have a timber frame, then it's unlikely that any structural strengthening will be necessary.
. The value of your Witham home may increase with a loft conversion. The popularity of loft conversions has increased in recent years, and that's not surprising when you consider the many benefits of converting unused space into an open-plan living area. A loft conversion can lift the value of your home by up to 10%. That's because it can add square feet to your home and make it more comfortable and enjoyable to live in.
