Buildings designed to make your living space enjoyable.

 

 

Converting your loft is a great solution to maximize the potential of your property and to get some extra space, with the minimum of disruption compared to other building projects. Loft conversion will certainly increase the value of your home, too.

If you are thinking of converting your loft, Wolf Projects can undertake even the most challenging of Loft Conversions and roof extension projects. We offer a complete package, from initial consultation and estimate through to 'ready to furnish' stage, which can include bespoke storage solutions.

There are four ways to convert your loft: Dormer, Velux, Mansard and Hip to gable loft conversion. Upon our first meeting and free on-site consultation we will advise which option is the most optimal for you in terms of feasibility and costs, we will then provide an estimate and offer a basic design idea, which will be developed further once you agree to proceed.

Why Should You Extend Your Home?

An overwhelming advantage of extending and not moving is the issue of stamp duty. It does not take a genius to work out that by the time you have calculated the agents fees for selling your house and the stamp duty on the one you are thinking of buying, you might well find you could build yourself quite a decent extension for the same price.

What do You Need to Consider Before Extending?

The trick is to extend and to come out well in the investment stakes, which means you have to put a lot of thought into even the smallest extension. For example, if you merely wish to extend the kitchen at the rear of your 1930s semi, should it be single storey or two? If it is the latter, what will go above it?

There are also practical issues to consider that are not directly concerned with the construction process. Access is a good example. If you add to your accommodation, will it mean more cars will need to be parked on the drive? If you have no drive then the lack of off-street parking might be a reason for the refusal of planning permission.

Similarly, if your house is in a terrace do you have rear access for the unloading of building materials or if not, will you have to bring everything from beams to blocks, and girders to guttering through the house?

Other important aspects to consider before you get to the stage of getting your plans drawn are matters like:

  • soil conditions on the site;

  • services;

  • surrounding trees;

  • any history of flooding;

  • rights of way.

Wolf Projects can help you, from the ideas you may have, right through to the completion of your extension.
