Eaves Loft Conversion From £20,000
An Eaves loft conversion is the probably the cheapest loft to build. This type of loft room is referred to as an ‘Internal loft extension’ or a ‘Velux loft conversion’. The loft exterior structure is not changed except maybe by installing the skylight windows, hence why it is called a ‘Velux conversion’. Internally floor joists are fitted to form the loft floor. Then electrical wires, plumbing and heating is installed in the loft. Finally the loft is boarded up, plastered and painted.
