Converting underused loft space remains one of the simplest and most effective ways to create new living space within your existing property. As an added benefit, your new room doesn’t come at the expense of a smaller garden. Our builders and craftsmen have equal proficiency with the three most popular types of loft conversion:
From a new bedroom with en suite facilities in Melton Mowbray to a home office in Oakham, our building contractors work with you to deliver stunning loft conversions in line with your design aspirations.
Converting a garage represents a cost-effective solution for homeowners who need more space but don’t want to extend. A significant number of garages in the UK no longer house cars. Instead they act as a storage facility for an assortment of household products.
A carefully planned garage conversion completed by an experienced builder can turn these neglected spaces into a new bedroom, home office, playroom, home gym and much more. This building work has the potential to add as much as 10% to the resale value of your home.
Naturally, our garage conversions in and around Melton Mowbray and Oakham need to comply with current UK Building Regulations. Key elements include ventilation, insulation, fireproofing, damp proofing, structural soundness and escape routes.
In most cases, garage conversions fall within permitted development rights. This means you don’t require planning permission before our builders get started. As your building contractor, we clarify this situation for you after a site survey.
Our builders undertake barn conversions, transforming agricultural buildings for use as residential properties. This provides a rare opportunity to create a home with truly unique charm and character. In addition, barn conversions usually sit in attractive rural areas where developers wouldn’t receive approval for new builds. This combination of aesthetic appeal, stunning locations and one-of-a-kind homes have seen barn conversions become a highly popular building service in recent years.
Changes and subsequent amendments to permitted development rights in 2014 and 2018, respectively, have made the process of converting barns in Melton Mowbray, Oakham and the neighbouring areas even more straightforward.
In most cases, building contractors don’t need to gain planning approval before starting work, although an application must be made to ensure compliance with noise impact, transport, contamination and flood risk requirements.
