Loft Conversion & Extension Chandos Avenue, Whetstone, North London
Chandos Avenue is a large loft and single story rear extension project for a local family in Whetstone North London who need more space. The family approached us on a recommendation from friends who are previous clients of ours. Infact, a large percentage of our business is either repeat or direct recommendation. This family had a strict budget they wanted to work within so we spent extra time with them developing a comprehensive scope of works. They specifically asked us to provide lots of detail to help them with their budgeting as they wanted to avoid any unforeseen costs. We employ a project manager that goes the extra mile for clients and spends time helping with whatever questions they may have.
This family’s loft will not only add much needed living and storage space but will increase the value of their home. It’s so much more cost effective to spend money on loft conversions and extensions nowadays, rather than stamp duty and solicitor’s fees that can add up to a significant amount when moving to a new house.
Double Hip to Gable Loft Extension
We’ve built a double hip to gable loft extension that has provided a large double bedroom, walk-in dressing area, shower room and loads of extra under eaves and under stairs storage space.The client also asked us to renew the roof at the same time which will save them money in the long run as we used the same scaffolding as for the loft. As part of the design and build process that we offer, we worked with the client’s brief for lots of natural light. The loft has two Velux windows, two gable windows giving light to the new stairwell plus bathroom and bedroom windows. There is also the luxury of a walk-in dressing area in front of the shower room and extra storage space under the eaves. This is accessible via low level doors and is boarded and insulated.
At ground floor, we’re building a rear extension with large windows, French doors and an aluminium double-glazed roof lantern which provide lots of natural light and make it feel like part of the garden.
We spent time sourcing new bricks and windows so that it all matches the existing house. We’ve also built a set of wide, redbrick steps that lead down to a garden music room.
