Loft Conversions

Loft Conversions

Loft conversions are an ideal way to create additional living space. An empty attic or roof space can be transformed into a beautiful living room, extra bedroom, study or bathroom. However, but be careful as not every loft space is suitable for conversion.

GreenSky has been desinging loft conversions for over 25 years and has an excellent track record of making even the most difficult loft into a beautiful living space.

Why use GreenSky Architecture?
We are in independant design practice, unlike many specialist contractors offering design and build we will give you unbiased advice on whether your loft can be converted.

What happens if I have my loft converted and it doesn't comply with the Building Regulations?
Depending on the severity of the non compliance the local authority can ask for it to be returned to its orginal state, especaiily if the means of escape in case of fire is compromised. Secondly a non complient loft conversion will have a detrimental affect on the value of your home.

Is there a minimum floor to ceiling height?
There is no minimum ceiling height for a room, however, you have to have a minimum 2m headroom on stairs and under beams, which is one of the critical design issues.

Can I renew the whole roof?
Yes, if the loft space isn't suitable for conversion and you have a detached property it may be possible to replace the entire roof structure and raise the ridge to gain additional internal headroom. However, this will require planning permission and may not be approved by the local authority
