  • Property renovation

    Hi,
    Can someone please offer advise. We have purchased a cottage in wales & converted the loft into a bedroom. The property is now on 3 floors - relevant distance ground to top floor is 4700mm.
    I believe if we are over 4500mm then bedroom doors etc should be fire doors - is this correct ?

    Also, on the ground floor, we have taken down a flimsy corridor & it is now open plan.
    With regard to fire regulations - should we replace this corridor, which leads to the stairs, so that there is a route out of the house from upstairs, in case of fire ?

    THanks for your help.

    Regards,

    Simon
