Loft conversion in Exeter

Here we have a full size dorma roof extension . It converted a drafty roof space to a master bedroom with en-suite and is now a real feature at the property. Browse the pictures and see the work from start to finish .

The stairs where made on site and are alternative tread ‘space saver’ design , this minimizes the footprint of the stairway . The location of the stairs was the rear double bedroom and because of the design it allowed it to remain a double sized room .

Work was done within ‘permitted development’ as there are no neighbors or any public right of way at the rear of the house ( a useful point to remember whilst in the design process ) .

Features : space saver stairs , en-suite with large ‘walk in’ shower and ‘his and hers’ wash basins ,  french windows and small balcony .




Extension in Exeter

Firstly a 40+ sq/m ground floor extension in Exeter , built within ‘permitted development’ with no need for planning permission . Browse the pictures and see the transformation from before works started to the finished article .

Typical cavity brick and block walls  and lean-too hipped roof with plain tiles .

Includes 3 square metres of porch at the front , a double bedroom with en-suite ( shower / utility room ) built along the side of the house and large open plan kitchen diner at the rear.

The existing kitchen was removed along with a section of the rear wall to give access to the rear area of the extension . The original front and rear door positions where also changed . We also re-routed the sewer to avoid having a manhole inside .

Features : Velux roof windows , large panoramic window at rear , french doors , Indian limestone flooring , American black walnut worktop ,  oak shelves / skirtings / sills , lit recessed cupboards , external decking area with built in planter / bbq .

Previous works at this address  included a total renovation and renew throughout  including structural alterations and opening up of the lounge and ground floor , re-plastering and decoration  , new bathroom and central heating system .

Out front a small patio and stone retaining wall tidied up the area between the garden and house . There will be a few photos added to the gallery showing parts of these works soon .
