Many details need to be considered when converting an attic, in order to meet local regulations, but also to make the space comfortable to live in. Regulations surrounding ceiling height will need to be taken into consideration as will whether or not there are any obstructions such as a chimney or water tank. Insulation will likely need to be installed or updated, and skylights will help to bring fresh air and light into the space. Finally, you will also need to think about how the space will be accessed - a professional will need to assess how a staircase will affect the weight-bearing capabilities of your home and attic.
