Once the neccessary planning/permitted development and building regulations approval is granted, your project manager will agree a suitable start date for your conversion. He will then organise a schedule of work, materials and tradesmen from the first through to the last day of the project. If required, a scaffold is erected a few days prior to the start of the conversion.

"I could not be more pleased with the way my loft has been finished, the quality of work is absolutely fantastic and it looks so natural it’s like it was part of the original house. Chris and the guys were very easy to have around the house and they worked day in and day out until the job was complete, I would recommend Chris & his crew to anyone considering a professional loft conversion."
