We have completed 35 loft conversions for clients all over the North East of England and Newcastle, in Gosforth, Jesmond, Heaton, North Shields, Whitley Bay, Tynemouth and other areas. Ask to see some examples of our previous work, we’d be delighted to show you!
Acre Designs director, Alistair Crerar, runs the company along with his wife Katie and a team of highly trained architectural technologists. Alistair has over 15 years’ experience with loft conversions having spent 10 years in building control assessing architects drawings for compliance and inspecting hundreds of loft conversions. When onsite and speaking with contractors and clients, he decided to set up Acre Design when he realised the delays, frustration and additional costs that poorly detailed or inaccurate plans cause were completely avoidable. Alistair has now created a template and process to maximise the budget, and minimise stress.
By converting your loft you can add some serious value to your home, a nationwide study suggests on average over 20%!.
You can create much needed space for things like a bright master suite, with built in wardrobes and a 5 star en-suite, or 2 bedrooms and a shower room so the kids can have their own floor.
This is also a great way to add more space for your family but also avoids needing to move home and it probably won’t even need planning permission! – it’s a win win solution.
Invariably, our loft spaces are used as storage spaces just collecting things we don’t need. Within your loft, there could be scope to add those desperately needed extra bedrooms, or maybe just another living room or even office space (often a tax deductible expense).
