Project Description

With this particular loft space, the challenge was the type of construction of the existing roof. This was a Truss type roof, comprising of the triangular framework which is common with Truss roofs.

This Loft conversion was achieved by using a steel sub frame to accommodate the floor area, this was raised slightly above the existing first floor ceiling. We also fitted a new window into the stairwell area within the gable end of the house, this enabled access to the loft space again with minimal disruption to the client and their family. We then fitted a steel crank ridge beam to support the apex of the roof and then fitted upgraded rafters alongside the existing trusses.

This gave adequate support to then remove the parts of the truss roof which were surplus to requirements.

The existing staircase was extended up and around into the loft area. This provided a master bedroom and large en-suite bathroom.
