When Rob Speer and his family decided they wanted to move to a bigger home, it came as a surprise to find that increasing the space in their existing property would actually be more cost effective.

Rob Speer, a Project Manager, lives with his partner and their two young sons in what was a two bedroom house with a third ‘box room’ in Woolwich, London.

The box room was the problem – it was so small there was no space for a double bed which meant they didn’t have the room for friends and family to come and stay.

Rob said: “We considered moving initially, but then we found out how much a loft conversion would be and decided it would be much easier and more cost efficient than moving house.

“We also recognised that would add value to the house, which in the long run would mean when we do decide to move, we’ll sell it for a higher price than we bought it for.”

“When we rang and spoke to a sales person at Econoloft they were really friendly and helpful, first impressions really count, so this played a big part in our decision to use them to do the job,” Rob added.

The family funded the £40,000 project by using money from their savings.

Rob said: “The work was completed to a very high standard; particularly the carpentry and we didn’t lose any space in our existing rooms which was a bonus.”

“We were very impressed with the professionalism of Econoloft throughout the five weeks they were here, they always kept us informed of what was going on and updated us on their progress.”

Rob and his family now have a lovely living space which has been described as a ‘penthouse’ by relatives! The room comfortably holds a king sized bed with plenty of room for two single beds, meaning they can have people to stay at their home on a regular basis – what’s more, thanks to Econoloft - they didn’t have to move to get it!
