Sheffield Loft Conversion
Recently, Wayne and the Toucan Property Maintenance Team have completed a loft conversion in Sheffield to extend a family home, adding another bedroom.
The previously unused space has now created a beautiful new bedroom. This has not only given the family additional living space within their property but has also added value to it with another bedroom. It is suggested a loft conversion, completed to a standard which befits your property, could add up to 20% to the value. While this may not be a direct concern at the moment, adding value to your property is never a bad idea!
If you are thinking of having a loft conversion in your property it is always a good idea to check if you need planning permission.
Loft Conversion Process
The loft space was first had the floor cleared to allow the space to be worked in. A Velux style roof window was then added to the space as can be seen in the picture. Once the window had been completed the room was then insulated to keep out the elements and wired to allow for electrical sockets and fittings to be put in place.
Once electrical wiring had been installed we were able to add boarding to the walls and floor of the loft room. This gives the space an accurate feel of how the room will form and the amount of space there will be when it is complete. Due to loft conversions normally being short on space, a spiral staircase is a regular fitting to allow the maximum retention on space in the existing parts of the house. These can fit into tight spaces such as old cupboards and make fitting the stair case generally cheaper.
From here the team started to form the room as it looks now with plastering applied to the new stud walls and decoration throughout. Power sockets were applied to the walls and carpet fitted to give the room a finished look.
