Brighton attic conversions regulations are not particularly stringent, being mainly concerned with volume of the added rooms – 50 cubic metres for a detached or semi-detached house, 40 cubic metres for a terrace – and a few other issues such as roof profile and overhangs. Loftus Design and Build are very experienced in planning requirements and can tell you at once whether what you have in mind with your attic conversion ideas can pass the planning process. As a guide, an average room is around 25 cubic metres and because of the roof slope, a loft extension can give you that average floor area for much less cubic capacity, so your loft extension can be quite large and still be well within the guidelines.
Just see what can be done!
Loftus Design and Build have photos of many projects for you to see if you need to have an idea of some Brighton attic conversions before and after. Sometimes it can be hard to imagine where the stairs are going to go and what impact this will have on the floor below and this is where the pictures come in particularly handy. Before making the final estimate of the job, our expert designer will discuss what your budget is and can tailor your Brighton attic conversion’s cost accordingly. Sometimes it will be a matter of not having some more expensive features to bring it in on budget but what Loftus Design and Build will never do is compromise on quality. We only use the very best materials and our installers are all very experienced and talented people – they install a great product but they are also neat and tidy; sadly not something that can be said of all companies in the loft conversion business as many people have learned to their cost!
We love seaside attic conversions!
Why? Because they often come with a surprise up their sleeve – a sea view! With a dormer window this can be an even bigger pleasure, as the views can be positively panoramic. Brighton homes within view of the sea always carry a premium when it comes to resale, so this can literally pay for the loft conversion’s cost in one fell swoop, simply with the additional value. We find many people who fall in love with the new view and make their attic conversion their main sitting room! Attic conversions can truly transform a home – just ask to see our portfolio of pictures and see what we can do.
