Lofts

Loft 1

This room was transformed from a basic loft with difficult access and a very limited storage area, into an easily accessible loft with a stable floor capable of storing large items.

A new trapdoor was fitted with a folding ladder, extra timbers were fitted to the existing ceiling joists to give more strength and enable thicker insulation to be fitted between the timbers. The floor was finished with 22mm moisture resistant chipboard flooring.

Loft 2

Relocation of loft access hatch.

Loft 3

The loft access was enlarged to allow for a new sliding metal ladder & new architrave was fitted around the new frame. A new custom made trapdoor was made and fitted with obscured glass. The job would be painted after completion by the client.
