From a practical standpoint a good head height from top of the ceiling joist to the underside of the ridge board. 2.2m or more is generally a good starting point. Staircases are also a governing fact of building loft conversions. This is something that must be addressed via taking measurements on an initial site visit. Walls may need to move in order for the staircase to fit and comply with current building regulations. Even if you have plans drawn up showing a staircase we still prefer to check ourselves due to past experiences.

Design stage

What does the customer require the space for and how can we best achieve this? We gather this information and relay it to our architect who will then design the loft to the customers requirements within the parameters and regulations of building control.

Build stage

Once everything has been finalized the scaffold will go up and construction begins. In our extensive experiences with loft conversions and with every loft having its own quirks and challenges it is not uncommon to deviate slightly from the design. Rest assured you will be informed every step of the way and given options and our opinions on the best way to navigate around such problems. Remember our motto No Problems Only Solutions!

Although the company was launched in 2018, we have over 35 years experience in Loft conversions, extensions and home renovations

I enjoy the various challenges throughout the design and build that ultimately end up with a happy customer living in the loft conversion built the way they wanted it. In terms of building, I particularly enjoy the second fix aspects of carpentry

We wanted to provide a more personal approach to building. One which gets us away from subcontracting from main contractors who are often driven by speed and a quick turnaround of jobs to maximize profits. Our approach is one of efficiency high quality and the job will take as long as it needs to take to ensure these criteria are met.

We are a small company dedicated to building one job at a time to the highest possible standard. We offer the complete package from design, build and certification from building control. During this process we will constantly give you feedback on progression and to provide suggestions as to how to make the most of your loft space. The point I am trying to get across is the team designing building your loft will be on site from start to finish, providing a single point of contact and cutting out the middle man.

We have been vetted by the Federation of Master Builders, and can also provide contact details of our previous customers and can arrange for a site visit to one of our completed loft conversions.
