Christmas may seem like some way off but if you are planning a loft conversion in time for the festive season, then you need to start the ball rolling now!
A loft conversion usually takes about 8 weeks to build – but you need to factor in the design stage which will include drawing plans and any paperwork required. Most loft conversions don’t need planning permission but you may need to organise a party wall agreement and a lawful development certificate can take a few weeks to come through.
If you live in a conservation area or a flat, you may also need planning permission and this can take months – hence why Econoloft recommend June as the perfect time to make good that promise of getting extra space at home.
If, like many of Econoloft customers, you have friends and family come to stay at Christmas you will know just how awkward it can be sharing your space. The kids will no doubt complain about having to share a room with Aunty Anne and be honest – you really resent having to give up your bed for the in-laws – and nobody likes to share a bathroom with Uncle Dave!
And so, imagine having the luxury of an extra bedroom (or even two) AND an extra bathroom for those staying guests. You may actually look forward to the in-laws coming to stay if you know you can give them their own space.
Of course, a loft conversion is not just for Christmas – it’s for life. Imagine the possibilities for your family with all that extra space. The children could have a room each – or you can enjoy a private retreat at the top of the house. You may want a study or hobby room where you can learn a new skill or indulge your passion. How about a games room or TV room? The possibilities are endless.
A loft conversion also provides a fabulous investment for the future – particularly a loft conversion in London or the South where space is in such short supply. Figures from most property experts agree that a loft conversion is usually the build project that adds most value to your property, anything from 20 – 25% depending on where your live.
And so Econoloft has designated this month (June 2018) Christmas Loft Conversion month. If you order a loft conversion at any time throughout June our Christmas present to you is a luxury Christmas hamper from Harrods worth £250 upon completion of your lovely new loft conversion.
