The proud owners of this 1980s constructed four bedroom detached home decided that rather than try to move house in the current economic climate they would invest into their home to make it their family residence for the next decade plus.
This 'residential reinvestment' is becoming more and more evident in prevailing property market conditions and for the cost of moving this client offset that cost against creating a fantastic Master Suite with magnificent Velux stacked windows.
Added to the conversion was a dynamic modern approach to the homes heating requirement with the introduction of photo voltaic AND solar panelling. The cost saving made by combining both the attic conversion AND the Eco friendly heating technology installation allowed the client to also install a fabulous ensuite WITHIN budget.
Truss Roof conversions can be daunting but LOFT is extremely well versed in undertaking multi Truss adaptations with stunning results. As a design team the client and Kevin assessed the multitude of Velux windows / window options available to them. Being a VIP installer LOFT had first hand access to the very latest Velux products and prices. The property had consumed all of of its currently available permitted development rights plus the client felt they did not want to have a cubic addition on the rear of their fine home. By astute use of stacked Velux windows this design came to fruition.
There doesn't have to always be external roof cubic additions to make an attic useable. Velux windows not only allow light to flood from all angles (often this light is uninterrupted) they sit on the 'outside' of the roof and thus afford additional head height. With outward opening Velux windows the user can walk 'out' into the area below. Fabulous character filled rooms can be formed from Velux conversions. Visit www.velux.co.uk
