This figure is by no means set in stone and is only intended as a guideline. The bulk of the cost will be taken up by construction work and building materials, and at the time of writing this works out at about £1,250 per square metre. There will needless to say be other costs including building control fees, planning fees and architect fees.

You must not just assume that you can go ahead and do a loft conversion, as not all lofts are suitable. Getting somebody in to ensure your loft can be converted should be one of the first things you do. Among the most important deciding issues is the height of the loft which must be no less than 2.2m. With nothing other than a ladder and tape measure, you can crawl up into your loft and measure this yourself. Is your roof built with trusses or rafters? You might not think that this is relevant but it will affect the ease and cost of the project. Doing conversions on trussed roofs tends to be costlier and more difficult.

An option that you may possibly consider is a shell loft conversion, especially if you are good at DIY projects. This is a service where the conversion contractor will execute all of the key structural tasks (often called a first-fix loft conversion), for instance windows/skylights, roofing work, steelwork (when needed), staircase, dormers/mansard and structural floor. The home owner (in other words you) is left to complete the rest of the work at his leisure. If you happen to be on a tight budget, a shell loft conversion could be ideal for you.
