Loft Conversion in Portsmouth

Hip to Gable Rear Dormer Conversion - Portsmouth Cosham

Discover the transformation of Abby and Matt's semi-detached family property in Cosham into a haven of luxury with a bespoke loft conversion. BMC was entrusted with the task of enhancing their living space through a hip to gable rear dormer conversion, resulting in a master bedroom, en-suite, and walk-in wardrobe. The loft conversion journey began with meticulous planning by the architect, ensuring every detail was considered. BMC initiated the project by removing the roof and chimney, installing steels, and laying floor joists. Our commitment to transparency led us to welcome the clients to witness the ongoing progress.

However, a challenge emerged as the client expressed concerns about the dormer size, unaware that it stepped back 3-4 feet from the rear of the property. Collaborating with Billy, the clients, and the architect, BMC adjusted calculations to extend the dormer to the rear wall, maintaining structural integrity. Another hurdle arose when the ridge beam had to be shifted 200mm due to the load-bearing wall's off-center position, necessitating additional supports. BMC, dedicated to quality, addressed the issue by reinforcing the flat roof with steel brackets.

Despite challenges, Abby and Matt demonstrated exceptional understanding, valuing the importance of resolving issues properly. This collaborative approach ensured a smooth construction process. Returning to the dormer stage, the extended structure now boasts a stunning en-suite, spacious master bedroom, and a delightful walk-in wardrobe with abundant natural light from VELUX Windows. These windows also illuminate the stairwell, creating a bright and inviting atmosphere on the way to the first floor.

Abby and Matt proved to be fantastic collaborators, receptive to explanations when needed. We extend our gratitude for their outstanding cooperation throughout the loft conversion journey. Experience the excellence of BMC in crafting bespoke loft spaces that elevate your living experience. Thank you for being great partners in this transformative project.

  • A proactive team who were able to interpret the gaps in the design and produce a workable solution, which in our case, did throw up some challenges. All of which were overcome with ease. Great job team BMC. Thank you

  • When looking for a Builder to manage and complete our loft conversion Billy came out on top for his customer service and attention to detail before the work even began.
    The team worked quickly and efficiently with little to no mess (we expected a lot more disruption). However, I was able to work from home during the entire loft conversion!
    The team were happy to answer any questions from me / my wife. Billy was also flexible when minor changes were required to the plans / layout.
    All of the trades Billy used were polite and courteous in our home and we couldn't recommend them highly enough.
