Can we carry out a loft conversion to a truss roof above a garage? YES! That was opening conversation in our talks with this client in Bovey Tracey, Devon. Our first visit was requested to take a fresh look at some plans that had already been prepared. Plans were to convert a double garage roof space that had a truss roof above. Upon inspection, existing plans were overly complicated and various companies could not see a simple way of converting this roof space within a sensible budget. The client required a room that could have many functions but was not essential so the end price and design needed to be cost effective.
What could we do? A truss roof conversion can be a challenge but designed and installed correctly, quite a simply conversion really. We presented a plan and quotation that would suit the client’s needs and budget for this project.
Access to the loft conversion would be via an external bespoke metal staircase with no interference with existing garage below. New conversion did not need to be part of the existing house, merely an extra space. The single room would be lit by two roof windows to the view side of the property.
The design was accepted and we scheduled in the works. All plans, structural calculations, building regulations and planning application were taken care of by us so the client could rest easy that all paperwork would be in place before work commenced.
The end result being a great space that has many uses, such as office, study, spare room, etc. The room itself has roof mounted windows to the front elevations. This provides enough light and ventilation for this modest room. Timber floor boards help the feeling of space. Entry is via a bespoke metal staircase to the side and entering into the gable end.
This garage loft conversion has made a fabulous addition to this property which will go on to provide a multiple of uses, not least a music room! Hope you enjoy Mr & Mrs C and “let the music play”.
