Wimbledon Loft Conversion
Home Our conversions Testimonials Going for gold with your loft conversion
Many home owners make additional money by renting out their home, or part of their home, and Mrs Halina Nekanda-Trepka, a retired Architect and currently a successful artist has been renting out the loft conversion in her 4-bedroom mid-terrace house since 1998.

“My property backs onto Wimbledon Park and is a pleasant 15-20 minute walk to centre court,” she said.  “After my daughter had left home we decided to convert the loft to make it a pleasant master bedroom and ensuite so we could do what so many of our neighbours do - and rent it out.”

The conversion, which was carried out by national company Econoloft consisted of upgrading an intolerably hot, un-insulated Victorian bedroom into a very pleasant guest bedroom and ensuite bathroom in a new dormer.

As a retired architect Halina had a very good idea of the quality she wanted from her new room and was very pleased with the outcome.  “Econoloft did a fabulous job.  My daughter, also an architect, worked with me to design the space and now it provides a great self contained guest room for two weeks of the year.”

Halina is not planning to rent out the space during the Olympics as she is more than happy with the money she generates during Wimbledon fortnight which sees her loft conversion being rented for around £80 per night.

However, she advises anyone looking to rent out a room during the Olympics or at any time of the year is to work with a trusted agent rather than try to do it yourself.

 “So many things can go wrong,” she said.  “I have worked with the same agency for years and for a percentage of the rent they take all the hard work out of letting the room.

“The find the right tenant, negotiate the price, ensure the person coming into your home has references and of course, pays the fee agreed. It gives us peace of mind.”

Over the years Halina’s loft has played host to tennis fans and journalists from around the world and even the occasional player. 

“I wouldn’t consider renting out a room without the loft conversion,” she said.  “The conversion allows my guests to be quite self contained and thanks to Wimbledon the conversion has pretty much paid for itself.”
