    Loft Conversion

    Loft Specialists

    I’m in the stages of planning a loft conversion. It’s not a huge loft and will probably only fit a desk and will be used for storage. I was advised to install two velux windows as to start with so at least we can get some light. I will need separate staircase going into the loft, for which there is space to do so - would I need an architect to draw all this up?

    To install Velux windows you wouldn’t and I don’t believe you need an architect for the stairs as you won’t be changing the use of the space just adding better access to the area."

    No, you don't need an architect to draw this for you."

    "No, you wouldn’t need an architect but In most cases, additional new joists will be required to comply with the Building Regulations as existing ceiling joists are unlikely to be able to take the staircase."
