There are cheaper ways to add value to your house (a garage conversion for instance), so if this is too expensive for you, there are other alternatives.

You need to check that your loft is suitable for conversion, because not every loft is. To get advice about whether your loft can in fact be converted, call someone in to survey it. A loft conversion in the UK requires a height of no less than 2.2 meters. You can even scramble up into your loft space and measure the height yourself. Does your roof have trusses or rafters? You might not believe that this matters but it can affect the ease and cost of the project. Doing conversions on roofs with trusses is generally costlier and more difficult.

If you are something of a do-it-yourself fanatic you could possibly even consider having what's known as a shell loft conversion. That's where all the essential structural work, including dormers, steel beams (when needed), roofing, staircase, structural floor and Velux windows is done. The interior jobs are left to the customer (ie you), allowing you to use your own skills to finish the work as you please. For householders with a limited budget, this could be the ideal solution.
