Originally a 2 bedroom property we were given the task of converting this loft space into a further 2 bedrooms, with an additional w/c making it a 4 bedroom house.

In doing so, we had to lower the 1st floor ceiling height, to give us the additional height to the ridge and remove a chimney breast down to the ground floor.

The walls are then sheathed, using structural hardwood plywood, before a cement based master board which acts as a fire resistant barrier to the neighbouring properties.

Firring pieces are then fitted to create the falls on the flat roof to control the flow of water.

As a Cold Roof detail was used we then Insulate between the joists before Sheathing the flat roof.

Once Sheathing is complete Fascia and soffit are installed with ventilation ready for the roof Coverings and windows.
