How Do You Convert Duplex Attic To Room?
Converting attic space in a duplex can yield an extra bedroom and bath or a small family room. The height of the roof’s peak will determine whether building in the attic will be worth it. High, slanted ceilings provide opportunities to install skylights or give the illusion of more space. You will need to speak with the family or individual living next door to find out any complaints they may have. For example, if you need to hammer and nail during a neighbor’s sleep time, try to come up with a better plan that will work for all concerned. Measure the space you want to convert to a living area. Design the space on paper and try to include a bathroom so family members will not have to go downstairs. Find out from local authorities if there are restrictions on building or any special building codes. Talk with neighbors and explain the project. Offer to work around their sleep schedules to build without disturbing them. Get a building permit and hire an expert carpenter to assist. Go over
