Sunroom/Kitchen Extension Kenton
This project in Kenton, NE3 was not the normal loft conversion for us. Instead it was a kitchen extension / sun room for the rear of the house. The client had a clear view of what he wanted prior to us getting involved. So together we came up with a plan and design for the extension. The aim, as always, was to achieve what he wanted and get the best out of the new kitchen and living area.
We completely reconfigured the downstairs of the property. Taking out the old kitchen, removing walls and then building new ones to totally redesign a new room layout. The additional extension was then built on the back of the house so that the whole downstairs design now flowed from one room to the next. It gives a real open feel to the house and making the new extension really feel like it had always been a part of it.
A new downstairs toilet got installed and then the new kitchen was fitted. With new electrics throughout and an array of modern lighting installed both above the benches and underneath all of the base units. All of the lighting was fitted on a full dimmer system allowing the lighting to be adjusted according to the ambience required in the kitchen at any time.
We fitted french doors to the kitchen where the old kitchen window had been to give full access to the garden area. This created a beautiful open and airy space for the family to enjoy.
We also landscaped the garden, built a boundary wall, backfilled the area and the turfed it. We finished it off with a brick built barbecue at the bottom of the garden which made a lovely feature. The whole project from extension to barbecue was a pleasure to work on. The finished job really shows the pride and attention to detail that we put into every project, whether it’s a loft conversion or kitchen extension.
We have since completed some other projects in the NE3, Kenton area, after people have seen the work we have completed here.
Loft Conversion Tynemouth
Julie and John Russell of Tynemouth got in contact with us via an architect we have worked with in the past. They’d had a number of quotations for this loft conversion. It wasn’t your average conversion, as it was basically a fully new layout of the roof area completely. It wasn’t a big enough space to achieve what they wanted so we needed to take the whole roof off completely, building the gable walls up on both sides, 3 dormers, a mansard roof, both the bay windows had new roof’s cut into them.
The only way to do this project was to put a full tent over the roof area and this was one of the first times we saw a full roof tent like this in the North East. This was really tested as the house is virtually on the Tynemouth sea front and so got all types of weather hitting it. We stripped it right back so that it was just the top of the actual ceilings of the rooms below, a couple of walls and the 2 chimney stacks.
From this point we installed 15 steel beams, built the floor to give us a platform to work off. There was then a crank-beam ridge installed which spanned the full width of the roof. From there we built the roof, then the dormers then the roof coverings. Once watertight we moved onto the internal work that needed completing. This whole process is exactly the same as all our other jobs, just on a much larger scale.
The finished loft conversion includes a Master bedroom, small bedroom, large hallway, walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom. This house in Tynemouth now has a lot more space than it did initially and the value of the house has increased massively.
Loft Conversion Darras Hall
Richard Turner got in touch with the luxury loft company after not being successful with a number of other builders lacking the knowledge to take on his proposed luxury loft conversion. He wasn’t sure what he wanted to use the space for but knew he had a great space that was going to waste in the form of a trussed loft. Mr. Turner is a businessman himself and was easy to work with and therefor after I throw some ideas at him regarding the best use of the space and which will add the most value to his home we come up with another master bedroom with ensuite and an office for Mr. Turner to make calls and address business away from his busy family home.
The build itself was more of a challenge then our usual projects but nothing to worry us, the architect came in, and between myself, him, and the engineer we came up with a full proof plan to get the maximum head height and floor space we could. The build took about 5 weeks in total from plans to paint.
Mr. Turner didn’t need planning permission for his loft conversion as it was a roofline, Velux conversion, and so didn’t change any of the main structure of the roof.
The windows were slightly larger than the normal Velux windows that we use, due to the height available for this conversion. This posed no problem for us and everything went smoothly. We transformed the space into 2 Bedrooms, consisting of a master bedroom at the rear and a smaller bedroom at the front of the loft.
The customer also decided he wanted to change the standard staircase to an open-rise staircase midway through the project. This posed no problem for us and we installed the oak, open-rise staircase which allowed more light into the area. As we were completing the staircase we were asked to continue with the hallway area and re-plaster all of the walls, fitting a new floor, fit new door frames, and some very nice, solid oak fire-rated doors throughout.
Garage Conversion Newcastle
This garage conversion project in Newcastle was more of a build than a conversion, but there had been an existing garage in place. The customer wanted to have a new garage in place of the old one and also give more security to the rear of the property. He also wanted to have full access through the rear of the garage. Allowing access to get into the garden and then on to the property. Much like other properties in the area who use their garages in the same way, the customer didn’t need any electricity or anything complex so it was a straightforward garage conversion for us.
We started, of course, by demolishing the old garage and removing the rubble and clearing the ground. We then dug out the foundations and began building the walls of the garage using traditional brick and breeze block for one of the walls.
A concrete floor was installed to the garage conversion and also plastic doors and windows along with a roller shutter main door for the garage.
As is standard with our work, we installed a full rubber roof to the garage which comes with a 25-year guarantee and a 50-year life expectancy, so giving years of worry-free waterproofing to all the jobs where applicable.
We have since completed other garage build and conversions in Newcastle. Some have been completed for car or normal use and others have been converted into an extra room in the house such as a games room or extra living room for the teenagers of the house.
