What's New With The Printing Of Your Drawings...

We all need a helping hand, now and again.

And so it is with 3rd Storey Technical Drawings.

Because of the growth and success of our loft conversion design business, one of our sister businesses - 3rd Storey Art & Graphics - is giving us a welcome hand by taking over all the day-to-day running of the printing and delivery of our drawings for customers. 

So for customers - whether you're a homeowner or builder - you'll now be in the capable hands of 3rd Storey Art & Graphics when you need printed copies of your loft conversion design drawings. Our art and graphics wing is the natural home to do this: it deals with printed output already and can handle both large format and high-definition printing. All you have to do is complete a simple online order form and your prints will be posted to you. You can go to the form here.

Both businesses will work seamlessly together for our loft conversion customers (as all three of our businesses do). And it means that the team behind our technical drawings wing can concentrate more than ever on what they do best: designing loft conversions to high, groundbreaking standards that meet the expectations of customers.

Why I Love Creating Technical Drawings for Loft Conversions.

In 1987 I began my first business as an Architectural Technician. I quickly discovered that of all my varied commissions - from domestic extensions to public buildings - it was the ‘humble’ loft conversion which I enjoyed working on the most. I say humble because many professional designers - Architects, Technologists, Draughtsmen, Surveyors, and so on - frequently told me how much they hated drawing loft conversions and, indeed, often shunned them: they considered these projects too small and problematic. I didn't agree, but I benefited greatly as they referred these projects straight back to me!

I closed my practice in 2013 after 26 years as an Architectural Designer in order to start my present business - The 3rd Storey Cloud: I wanted to have a technical drawing business that was dedicated to loft conversions design (3rd Storey Technical Drawings) and to also pursue my other interests in the field of art & graphics (3rd Storey Art & Graphics).

Over my years designing loft conversions, I have honed my skills to specialise in helping families ‘move up and not out’ and obtain that much needed additional living space for homeowners on a budget. Continuing to do this work is very important to me. Should you choose 3rd Storey Technical Drawings to design your loft conversion, I look forward to meeting you.

My kind regards,

Anthony Lewis.
