If you are lucky enough to live in beautiful Greenwich, it is unlikely that you would ever want to leave. However, if you have outgrown your current home, you may be worried that you cannot afford to upsize to a larger property and stay in the area that you love. It is no secret that house prices are rocketing in and around the capital, and with outdoor space at a premium in the local area, a traditional extension is not an option. Luckily, with a professional construction company like OR Lofts, your loft space can be easily converted to create all of the space you could possibly need.
A loft conversion in Greenwich takes around 7 weeks of minor inconvenience compared to the months it would take to move house. It is also considerably more cost effective than buying and selling a property. With a loft conversion, there are no agency fees, solicitors bills or stamp duty to pay. Your home will instantly increase in value on completion of the project due to the extra rooms created, so the initial outlay can be offset against the gain in equity in your home. The project pretty much pays for itself!
One concern that potential clients have is where they will fit a fixed staircase into their existing living space. For a professional and experienced company like OR Lofts, this is no issue at all. We will work with you to reconfigure the existing living space to accommodate the staircase to your new, bespoke loft conversion. We will sympathetically design the new extension to ensure that it fits seamlessly into your home with an aim to make it feel like the new staircase and room (or rooms) were always there.
Loft conversions can be created in a number of ways. The first option is to create a velux extension. This is where we work within the space that already exists and the only noticeable feature from outside will be the windows in the roof. The other method is to create a dormer extension, which is visible from the outside as it requires adding extra space on to the roof. It is largely down to what the local planning office will allow as to how we can proceed, but if you look at the other houses in the area, you will get a good idea of how likely it is that planning will be granted for a dormer.
At OR Lofts, we will always endeavour to make your vision a reality. We will advise you on how realistic it is that you will get the space and the design that you desire within your budget. We are experienced at working within all kinds of briefs with a huge range of budgets, and we have created beautiful loft spaces for all kinds of purposes. From extra bedrooms to playrooms to studios and offices. Our years of specialising in the art of loft conversions mean that we can create the space you want in the budget you have.
