Anybody got a rough idea or recently had  costs for a loft conversion looking to put 2 bedrooms with velux windows and a small toilet and sink up there. Obviously stairs as well.

Probably going to be around £25k

will depend on if you have existing attic trusses.

we had it done as had attic trusses and was £15k + vat without putting in toilet etc & not allowing for decoration and flooring.

We are thinking/hoping it was going to cost around the 20k ish mark. Did your 15k plus vat included getting an architect to do plans etc ?

I had it done through my work so although quoted at proper job rates it was done through a building notice rather than planning permission so would have saved some £££ in fees.

Had a building company out. They said upto 20 grand depending what architect draws up. He came out the other day and reckon him engineer and building warrant or whatever is about 2 grand. Ours is slightly bigger than the one above . It's a funny shape due to chimneys etc but I had a quick measure and it's roughly 11m by 4 m. From floor  to the point of the roof is 3m. We've asked for 2 bedrooms  and possibly a small toilet if possible don't mind the 2 bedrooms being slightly smaller.  Just see what the architect comes back with.

When you get someone to do your plans make sure they have previous experience of doing loft conversions, take particular notice of ceiling height.

Cheers mate. ive seen some off the atudf the architect and builder have worked on together and it's a good standard of work.  As for ceiling height im 6ft3 so I was worried but architect seems to think it will be fine. He used a digital measure but I done it with a tape measure aswell and the pitch of the roof to the floor in the loft is about 3.2m.

If it's 11 meters in lenght you'll need a stanchion up the centre or in and around to support your beam,if you have solid walls below loft you should be ok,if there's studs you'll need a stanchion from ground floor up to attic.let us know how you get on
