Loft Conversion Drawings
The above image is of a completed loft conversion. The property is a Victorian mid terrace, commonly these properties boast enormous potential for loft conversion due to their large roof spaces with very high ridge line which allows ample head height. The planning drawings were created to the clients design, allowing for one very large master bedroom with an ensuite and walk in wardrobe. The rear dormer is full width and has a large window allowing for natural daylight to brighten up the bedroom.
Full building regulation approval has been granted for the works. The planning drawings and building regulation drawings were both completed by Detailed Planning with the structural calculation being completed by the separate engineering company. The building regulation drawings also applied to the total refurbishment of the property, a new kitchen was installed and an additional W.C has been added to the cupboard below the stairs.
The first floor ceiling was completely removed to lower the ceiling level, which created a even larger head height to the loft conversion. The first floor head height was originally 2600mm high which was then reduced to 2400mm high. The new steel beams carried the ceiling which is also the new loft floor.
This is another fine example of works undertaken to maximise the potential for a characterful dilapidated property, the planning and building regulation drawings enabled all consents to be obtained from the local authority, and for the builder to work to, preventing any problems or unforeseen circumstances.
