If you're okay at do-it-yourself and are keen to take on such a project, you might opt to have a shell loft conversion.

The remainder of the work is left to the householder (in other words you), so that it can be completed in your own time and carried out to your own specs. For householders on a strict budget, this can be a good solution.
