Craymanor Limited are delighted to have received instructions to design a loft conversion for our clients in Sidcup, Kent.
Our clients specification is for two new bedrooms to be added to their home and we also hope to incorporate an en-suite to compliment the scheme.
One of the main concerns in designing and building a loft extension is the amount of head room available. In this instance the loft has already been partially converted and the head room is very low. Craymanor’s concern was that when the loft was fully converted that a further 300mm would be lost off of this dimension which would mean the roof would have to be raised to achieve the desired amount of head room.
There are two possibilities open to our client and which Craymanor will investigate further with the local authority Planning Office.
Our clients have told us that their neighbour may be interested in carrying out out a similar scheme and Craymanor would be more optimistic of a favourable decision by the Planning Office if they both were to raise the roofs of their existing buildings at the same time.
Another alternative would be to lower the whole of the existing first floor ceiling enabling sufficient head room within the loft space but the drawback of this is that the high ceiling period features of this property may be lost at first floor level.
Craymanor Limited are delighted to be working along side our clients to reach a design solution that will enable the constructions of a fantastic addition to their home.
