Converting underused space in the loft remains one of the most effective and simplest 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 alongside each individual client to deliver stunning loft conversions in line with any specification.
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, garage conversions need to comply with current UK Building Regulations, especially in regard to ventilation, insulation, fireproofing, damp proofing, structural soundness and escape routes. However, in most cases, garage conversions fall within permitted development rights, so they usually don’t require planning permission. As your building contractor, we clarify this situation for you after a site survey.
Barn conversions transform 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 more straightforward than ever. In most cases, builders do not 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.
