The Future Is Loft Living
Tuesday 04 August, 2009
Over the last year the economic climate has dramatically changed the property market and today more and more people are choosing home improvements over the costs of moving. Homeowners are turning to Attic Life, the leading loft conversion specialist in the area, to utilise the space in their homes and since establishing over six years ago, this local company has gone from strength to strength.
"We specialise in loft conversions so we can offer our clients the best in design and value for money, and can ensure a high degree of customer satisfaction," explains Managing Director Neil Herd, who has been in the industry for over 20 years. Offering a personalised service Attic Life can provide conversions that either blend with the features of your home or that add a modern extension to your property. Each job is project managed to retain continuity and quality of work throughout and the company employs its own team of skilled craftsmen while also offering a free survey and free design, with a fixed price quotation.
Attic Life, based at Charmborough Farm Business Park, Holcombe has received more testimonials and referrals than any other loft conversion company working in the South West, which was paramount to the success of the business and resulted in a recent 'Built in Quality Award' 2008.
"The best loft conversion we've ever seen..."
With two teenage children and a spare room taken over by homework and computers, Cindy Mack's four bedroom home in Bath was becoming a bit of a squeeze. "The sofa bed really isn't good enough anymore when our parents come to stay and so we were desperate to create a proper guestroom," Cindy explains. Having seen a feature on Attic Life in an edition of The Bath Chronicle last year and armed with a friend's recommendation of the company, Cindy contacted the team. "We found the whole process very easy," says Cindy. "George project managed the conversion so we didn't have to deal with anyone but him, which was great. He informed us about everything that was happening and everyone involved were always friendly and professional." As with most jobs the layout of Cindy's loft conversion evolved as work began, with the advice of Neil. "We wanted to gain another room with the loft conversion and had originally planned to have the master suite upstairs, complete with a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite, and free a room up downstairs for the new guestroom," reveals Cindy. "As Neil started to design the space we quickly realised that the steep pitch of the roof wasn't going to accommodate much storage space, so we then decided to have a guest bedroom with en-suite and a study instead. It works so well and they're both fantastic rooms that, along with the staircase, fit brilliantly with the rest of the house. We can't recommend Attic Life highly enough."
