Loft conversion incorporating an en-suite wetroom and a split level bedroom on a mid terrace Victorian house (see photos).

Once we had put in place the steel floor beams, we had a solid stable floor to then install the steel ridge beam. As the neighbour’s dormer had been built over the boundary line, we then had to reduce the size and fix a triple rafter to carry the new dormer cheeks.

After the structure was built and weathered, the first fix plumbing and electrics were installed which then allows the insulation to be placed before the flooring and plasterboard.

Solid walnut flooring was laid to both bedroom floors. Fitted wardrobes provide adequate storage in the main bedroom.

A Juliet Balcony outside the French doors makes the most of the view from the new bedroom.

The split level bedroom was intended for use as an office but the clients decided to use it as a nursery.

The stairs were manufactured by ourselves on site, to match the existing Victorian stairs with a string to the wall side and stepped string on the internal side.

The en-suite wetroom had all pipe work built into the walls to allow for clean lines upon completion. After the whole room was tanked to provide a 100% watertight background, we then tiled throughout with natural marble for a stunning finish. The sanitary ware was installed with two basins fitted onto a walnut bench with an additional bench below providing a shelf. The toilet was wall hung with a hidden cistern. Heating is provided by a vertical chrome towel rail. A recessed mirrored wall cabinet adds the final touch to what is a wonderful addition to the conversion.
