Attic conversion it´s the best option to add living space to your house, most importantly because it will cost less than a house extension. Most of the houses in Ireland have an attic, however, it is usually used only as a storage space. If you convert an attic to a living space, you could gain up to 30% of the usable floor area in a two-story building.
There are different kinds of conversion you could do depending on the size such us: extra bedroom and bathroom, a teenager`s bedsitter, or a home office. To create adequate headroom for a staircase may involve a dormer window. It’s very important to install steel beams and new timber joists because your existing floor is not adequate for that. The new rooms will require natural light and ventilation, thermal and sound insulation, and a range of plumbing and electric services.
