We called four different firms for a quote, and Re-style impressed us the most. We liked that they were authoritative on all technical aspects of the work we wanted doing. A builder gave us a lower quote, but we were not convinced that he was aware of all the building regulations. We were confident that ReStyle would do a good job, and they did a great job. Thanks”

Susanne Kilshaw and Chris Oldfield looked upwards when they considered extending theirthree-bedroomed Victorian semi in Totley. There was already a second-storey atticroom, but it only used half the roof space. Chris and Susanne have been refurbishing their property since they moved in four years ago, and had not thought of utilising the hidden, secret space – until they werere-plastering a bedroom below. They decided to convert it into an office for Chris, who is a solicitor and often works from home. Says Susanne: “We called four different firms for a quote, and it was Craig, of Re-Style, who impressed us most. “We liked that he was authoritative on all technical aspects of the work we wanted doing. A builder gave us a lower quote, but we were not convinced that he was aware of all the building regulations. We were confident Craig would do a good job

The first stage of Chris and Susanne’s conversion involved creating a doorway by cutting a hole in the wall from the original attic landing into the empty loft space. Steel beams were fitted vertically and horizontally to strengthen the room. Floor and roof spaces were insulated, and two Velux windows installed. Re-Style ran electricity into the room for halogen downlights, and water pipes for a radiator. The walls were then fitted and plastered.

The result is a super 12ft sq fourth bedroom/ office space. The loft conversion was completed in three weeks, on schedule, and within budget. Re-Style offer a complete design service. Their in-house architect, and structural engineer, will work to your requirements and deal with all the necessary planning permissions and building regulations. The company’s qualified joiners, plasterers, electricians and plumbers will guarantee that your conversion is completed to a very high standard. “The finished room looks wonderful,” says Susanne. “We have had many different workmen in our home while we’ve been refurbishing it, but the Re-Style men were by far the best well organized, punctual, polite and considerate. We felt very comfortable just leaving them to it.
