A hip to gable loft conversion, with a rear dormer on a bungalow
The changes made for this hip to gable loft conversion also meant some key layout changes had to be designed. The entrance of the house led into porch, followed by a hallway which connected with two downstairs bedrooms at the front. A lounge could be found at the back of the property on the left hand side, which allowed access into the conservatory at the rear. Also downstairs was a WC, bathroom and two cupboard spaces in the hallway. The kitchen sat at the back and the stairway to the first floor was positioned here. With the changes being made upstairs, this meant the stairs had to be repositioned to a more central area, with the two hallway cupboards making way for the new stairs.
The loft upstairs originally featured one solitary bedroom with the rest of the space used only for storage. The storage area was completed converted to include two new bedrooms, both of which featured new dormer windows. The existing bedroom also saw the introduction of a dormer window, in place of the frame that had previously been in place. A second bathroom was also installed for use by those using the bedrooms upstairs. One of the bedrooms that had previously been on the ground floor was re-positioned into the new loft space, which allowed a new dining room to take its place downstairs at the front of the house.
“I would say your drawings were really good and what I liked is you listened to what we were asking for but had the patience and skill to understand what wouldn’t work from a planning perspective. You were friendly, courteous and efficient and kept us informed as to what happens which is really important.”
Alan & Joe Castle, Paddock Wood, Kent.
“I would highly recommend KCR Design as Keith was very friendly but professional from the start. The drawings he done we really good and made the best of the space in our house. We were over the moon with the outcome and love our new extension”
Sarah & Dominic Farrugia, Gravesend, Kent.
“I would not hesitate to recommend Keith Rogers from KCR Design. Keith is a talented architect who dealt with the whole process of drawing up plans for our ground floor extension expertly and without fuss. He also saw us through the various stages involved with gaining planning permission and even recommended a reliable local builder who finished the work to a high standard. I would not hesitate to use Keith again.”
Gill & Alan Greenwood, Borough Green, Kent.
“We choose KCR Design because we were impressed by their previous work. Initial plans were drawn up very quickly and we were led through the planning process, being given invaluable advice along the way. The same was true of the Building Regulations. Even when we wanted to change things on the drawings, nothing was too much trouble.”
David Johnston, Chart Sutton, Maidstone, Kent.
“We were very impressed with Keith’s straightforward honesty, right from the outset he always kept us informed. The extension we wanted was difficult because our house is built on a slope, but planning was taken care of and a specification passed building control. We found the whole process of getting planning permission to be painless and would not hesitate to recommend Keith’s services.”
Mr & Mrs Green, Meopham, Kent.
“We just wanted to say a big “thank-you” for the wonderful job you did on our first floor extension. We wouldn’t hesitate to use you again and recommend you to our friends.”
