Refurbishments: Hertfordshire

Chime Square, St Albans


Build Cost:  £87,000

This was a whole house refurbishment, with a loft conversion and adding a rear single storey extension on a 10 year old townhouse in St Albans city centre.

The loft conversion was formed by adapting the existing trussed roof area and created an additional bedroom.

The refurbishment work included the complete remodelling of all floors to give our client much better use of their family living space by moving the kitchen downstairs and creating an additional family room on the first floor.

The new rear extension with a glazed roof made a much better use of space once the old utility room was removed and the the garden was updated with a contemporary feel and clean finishes.

Architect - Sara Rattenbury

The end of terrace townhouse before work commenced. The property currently has a rear first floor kitchen which the clients want to relocate downstairs to create a move cohesive living environment for their family.

The rear of the property was extended with a single story extension to create a large kitchen.

The garden as viewed from the 2nd floor.

Scaffolding is effected to facilitate the loft conversion.

The steels for the loft conversion are lifted into place.

The old first floor kitchen was cramped and impractical.

Before work commenced on this project. Loop provided the client with 3D illustrations of their three bathroom areas.

This assists us in communicating the installation of these items as much as helping our clients understand our intended layout.

The kitchen opens directly onto a contemporary courtyard garden that is completed with floor and wall tiling as well as feature lighting.



A corian worktop was installed as a preparation surface as well as a seating area.

The kitchen extension received a glass roof finish.


A recessed, lit shelving area was added to the bathroom.
