TB Davies helps create additional space in a typical ‘between the wars’ semi-detached house in Cheshire.
The house is typical of the 1920s with tall chimneys, leaded windows, gabled ends and a steeply pitched roof. House builders built many homes like this across the UK. The garage already made way for a new extension incorporating a workshop/garage to give owners Duncan and Emily more space for themselves and their three children.
Emily works from home and runs an online personalised gift business and quickly found the workshop required more space to store the materials she needed on a less frequent basis. The couple decided the obvious solution was to go up into the roof void but were unsure if it was something they could do themselves.
After a long look online, they decided to call TB Davies for some advice and spoke to Jay. During the call, Jay determined the frequency of use and asked Emily to take a few pictures and obtain some basic dimensions. The builder had left a small opening, so once Jay knew what was inside the roof space, he guided the couple to the Eurofold Loft Ladder as a potential solution.
EuroFOLD Loft Ladder Fits the Bill
The loftladder comes as a complete system with the ladder, insulated trap door and frame. The opening was large enough to take up the most oversized boxes Emily required, and no joists required cutting to install the ladder. After watching the installation video, the couple decided to pick the ladder from their local store and fit it in themselves.
Emily said, ‘We’ve done loads of work on the house but cutting the plasterboard was quite daunting. We roped in my brother-in-law to help lift the ladder into position. The whole fit took about a day to complete, and once we boarded the loft space, we finally managed to clear my workshop floor.’
Straightforward Loft Ladder to Fit
Duncan continued, ‘The ladder is easy to operate, and we are pleased to have fitted the ladder ourselves, as we couldn’t find a builder to even look at the job to give us a price. We did get stuck at one point on how to locate the springs, but a quick call to the support line put us back on track.
