To be certain that your loft can be successfully converted, get a specialist in to have a look at it. One issue is the total height of the loft space, if it's in excess of 2.2 metres you should be set fair. This is one thing that you can even check for yourself, simply crawl up into your loft with a tape measure. Does your roof have rafters or trusses? You might not believe that this is relevant but it does impact on cost and ease of the project. Converting trussed roofs is generally costlier and more difficult.
