Ensuring A Safe Working Enviroment For Loft Conversions Uk To Work In
Don't forget that any new habitable rooms in your loft will need to be ventilated.

Altering Roof Structures In UK
If you happen to live in a conservation area, or if your roof space isn't tall enough, getting planning permission may be more complicated. Unless your roof has a breathable felt you will need to leave a void above the installed insulation and ensure that you have effective roof ventilation to prevent the build-up of condensation in your home.
Wherever the stairs for your loft are installed, it should be designed in accordance with fire precautions and building regulations in mind. As part of the fire safety upgrade for your loft conversion your stairways should lead to a hall and an external door.
