The decision has been made and a loft conversion is right for you; however, is your loft right to be converted? Does your loft have a small footprint, or the trusses that form the roof structure could be occupying majority of the space (see our blog on truss rafter roof roofs and loft conversions)?
If this is the case there is still the possibility that your loft space can be converted. Lofts with a minimum head height of 2.1m (from top of existing joists to underside of ridge, which should achieve 2m head height approximately) are usually seen as fit to convert. Although a truss rafter roof can be seen as an obstacle with the help of an experienced loft conversion company, truss rafters are no obstacle. There are certain ways and means around them which will leave you with a very usable space.
The go ahead has been given and your loft space can be converted, but how do you make the most out of your small loft space?
