Loft conversion in Worcester
Nick and Katherine contacted us to explore options into having a loft conversion.
We went along had a chat and discussed there requirements.
Nick not being a well man asked for a room to use for his medication.
Katherine wanting to be at home, working so she could be close to Nick asked for an office/study.
Various options were discussed, a dorma to the rear, lifting the whole roof, window roof lights so we all sat down and drawings were drawn for the options above, a careful thought process followed and we all finally decided that the use of Velux’s was going to be the best option.
Building regulations stipulate 2m headroom at the top of the stairs and with the introduction of a Velux rooflight achieved this and also giving daylight on the stairs we all felt this was very important.
The stairs to the loft came off the large master bedroom which was also at the end of the hallway, moving the bedroom door back the width of the new stairs and putting the stairs tight against the wall we kept the intrusion to a minimum, clever use of the space under the stairs within the bedroom was kept to give vital storage.
The landing at the top of the stairs gives us two doors one left into Katherine’s office with a lovely rooflight which gives plenty of daylight for working and opens for ventilation on those hot summers days.
The right door opens into Nicks room with two roof lights giving ample daylight, a small room with a sink and gable window at the end for cleaning his medication, keeping his movement up and down stairs to a minimum, this was very important in the decision process at the start.
As requested we took care of all the drawings, and planning discussions, although not required due to permitted development rules.
Building inspectors requirements were adhered too.
