Project Type

Velux only conversion, refurbishment of stairwell, master bedroom, drawing room, family bathroom.

Project Description

We first visited Mr and Mrs Flattery in 2005/06. We were asked to price three conversions to include a dormer to the north side of the property, at the time this conversion needed planning permission approval for the work to commence. Once approval was granted approximately 12 weeks later, Mr Flattery once then asked if we could book them in for a start date in March 2008. During the break between finishing the drawings and the start date we met on a number of occasions to clarify the internal specification.

We commenced work in March 2008, by this time we had built up a good friendship / relationship with Mr and Mrs Flattery, and we were given free rein to build their conversion to the high specification they required.

Architecture and Interiors are of great interest to the team so we was in our element being able to source quality products to make this project not just another Velux only conversion. One of the biggest elements to a conversion are the light and air, so for this we specified five windows by The Rooflight Company called the Neo®, (specification - electric remote opening, electric remote blinds and full oak surrounds) which at the time had never been installed on any other property so were a prototype . . .

As well as this we installed a ridge glaze window over the stairs to light the stairwell, Mr Flattery specified from day 1 for us to make sure we fitted a round oak window to each gable, we had these made through a mutual friend, Gerard at G3Joinery. As the project commenced and we had finished the structural work, the team and Mrs Flattery worked on the finishing touches, including fired earth tiles, granite, corian and Hansgrohe Citterio bathroom fittings.

Once the loft was completed Mr and Mrs Flattery approached us to see if it would be possible to refurbish the hallway, master bedroom, en suite, drawing room and main bathroom.

As current customers we were more than happy to source materials and finish the other rooms for them and lucky enough to work on such a high quality project.
