Before and After: A Loft and Rear Extension in North London

Last month, we took on a project in North London that involved the conversion of an attic space into two bedrooms and a bathroom, as well as extending the back of the house to add more living space to the property. Today, we’re going to show you before and after photos of this Loft and rear Extension North London  and explain how we made it work so well.

Why We Decided To Have The Loft And Rear Extension

We had been living in our house for a few years and loved it, but we knew that we wanted to make some changes to make it our forever home. We decided that a loft and rear extension would be the perfect way to add some extra space and light to our home. The building work was all carried out by contractors and they did an amazing job with everything from start to finish. The loft has now become our new office which is really convenient as I’m able to work from home whenever I want. The extra bedroom is also great for guests, so now when friends come over they have somewhere comfortable to stay!

What We Did

We added a loft and rear extension to this North London home, which brightened up the space and made it feel more open. The homeowners were thrill with the results! They loved the new loft bedroom, which features an ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet. They are now able to enjoy their beautiful garden without worrying about pesky insects thanks to their increased outdoor living area on the ground floor. There’s plenty of room for kids to play outside in the large back yard. The loft is perfect for grown-ups looking for peace and quiet or even couples who need a little time away from the kids! Guests will love the separate entrance and spacious en suite bathroom. The modern kitchen has been extend as well, making cooking an enjoyable experience for everyone.

How Much Did It Cost?

This project was a loft and rear extension in North London. The total cost for the project was £65,000. This included the cost of the architect, structural engineer, planning permission, building control, and the builder. The project took four months to complete. There were many steps involved in this project that needed to be completed before construction could begin. First, we had to submit the application form for planning permission with our plans attached. We then had to pay an application fee (£395) which would need to be paid again if we did not get approval from council officials. If we did receive approval from council officials, there would be more fees associated with that as well (building regulations inspection fee-£200).

Our Thoughts On Our New, Bigger Home

We absolutely love our new, bigger home! The loft and rear extension have made such a difference and we are so grateful to have the extra space. The process was definitely worth it and we would do it again in a heartbeat! It took about 6 months for all of the work to be complete which wasn’t too bad at all. It’s nice having more room for guests when they come over as well as more storage space for clothes and belongings. We also really enjoy being able to have friends and family over without feeling cramped. Having the garden is an added bonus that makes this house feel like home. One of my favorite things about this home is how much light there is now because of the two big windows on either side of the front door.
