The Levick family – Mark, Sara and their two children Mya aged 9 and Harry aged 5 – have lived in their St Alban’s semi detached home for several years and even though they had a side extension they realised they needed an additional bedroom.
“The extension doubles as a spare bedroom for when we have people coming to stay,” said Mark, “however, Harry who was in the box room, is eventually going to grow out of that little space and we decided to invest in a loft conversion.”
Econoloft had already built nearby and the family had watched its progress with interest. Although they did see another company just to compare prices and expertise – it was Econoloft that won the contract.
The Levick family have been hugely impressed with the Econoloft team and say that although they had their own design ideas, they decided to follow the advice of the site foreman Callum.
“I’m so glad we took his advice,” said Mark. ‘If we had done what I wanted the conversion would have been ruined. It’s always best to trust the experts and essentially we put all our trust in Callum and thank goodness we did. Our loft conversion is fantastic.”
Econoloft built a full dormer conversion comprising of a master bedroom with a not quite ensuite bathroom which is just off the landing. The 4 m x 4.7m bedroom feels very spacious and thanks to a huge floor to ceiling window at the back, lets the natural flight flood in.
Like many of our customers Mark and Sara say the loft conversion seems to have opened up the whole property and they love escaping to their retreat at the top of the house.
“We feel like we are going to bed in a hotel room every night,” said Mark. ‘We are not overlooked and thanks to the feature window we can enjoy a nice view of trees from our bed when we wake up. Although it felt strange at first, coming to bed up a new flight of stairs, we love it now and we don’t know how we ever manged without it for all these years.”
The family love where they live and have no intention of moving any time soon and thanks to this new space they have plenty of room for their family to grow with Harry eventually moving into his parent’s old bedroom.
“We know the conversion has added value,” said Mark, “but as we don’t plan on moving we have not had it formally valued. For us, the loft conversion has been all about completing our family home and providing us with the space we need. It’s done that and more.”
