1930′s Semi Detached House – hip to brick gable with tiled flat roof dormer

A previous happy client contacted us to see if a Loft Conversion would be possible to an Exeter 1930s semi-detached house they were hoping to purchase. We promptly arranged a visit with their estate agent and carried out a free survey.

We viewed the property whilst house was being marketed for sale to give our client an early indication of the potential and conversion cost involved. Following the estate agent viewing meeting we confirmed in writing a fixed price quotation along with a scheme drawing showing a suggestion of what could be achieved with the client’s directions.

Design was a hip-to-gable to the side of this very typical 30’s semi-detached house. Gable would be raised in brick construction. This would create a close appearance to what the property would have looked like had it been a gable end rather than a hip end.  A flat roof dormer to the rear elevation would give essential space to allow for the master bedroom and full en-suite. Fakro roof window to the front elevation would provide a nice spread of naturel daylight and very useful ventilation front to rear of the new bedroom.

The end result really suits the property and has provided a huge bedroom and en-suite.  A nice increase in the house value as well. Perfect!
