Building a Dormer Loft Conversion - Case Study
Our client in Mill Hill wanted to add some space to their home. Because there already was an existing house extension at the back of the property, they opted for a loft conversion. The original roof was quite low, so Velux Conversion was not an option. Therefore, they decided to go for a flat roof Dormer to add maximum space to their home.
To start with the construction, we first covered the house to keep it dry and safe. Then, we carefully removed the original roof tiles, which were later reused. We reinforced the first floor ceiling in order to build the loft floor. Next, we constructed brick walls on each side and a timber and steel frame at the front of the conversion, ready to be insulated and dressed with external plywood, concrete board and silicone render before being fitted with the large Schuco windows. We finished the exterior by constructing a flat roof. The original roof tiles were placed back onto the remaining reinforced sloped roof. We plastered and painted the bedroom, fitted the carpet and built a bespoke made to measure wardrobe. We used beige and brown tiles to finish the bathroom.
