Before heading into a renovation it is vital to know exactly what you are getting into, or at least as much as possible. After you have cleared all the clutter, furniture and cobwebs out of the space take a close look at every square foot of the room. You are looking for signs of critter, bird or insect intrusion, mold, rotting wood, asbestos (depending on the age of the house) and the general condition of the space. If you suspect there is asbestos please be sure to contact a professional to come and test your insulation, as asbestos can be harmful to your health. Check to see if there is insulation under the subfloor. If the walls are dry walled, cut out a small hole in each wall to check for insulation.

This would obviously add to the cost but would definitely be worth it if the musical instrument was something like the drums or electric guitar. If it was a piano, you may have some difficulty getting it up in the attic!

Another important thing to consider is exactly what you want to do with the space that is present in your attic at this very moment.

It is definitely important to have a clear and concise plan when heading into a renovation of any kind. You and your contractor need to know exactly how the space should look upon completion. However, be prepared to change your plans. No one ever knows when an issue will come up. A rotted floor board or outdated electrical can come up, adding more money and time to the project. Window or skylight positions may need to be adjusted, so be willing to compromise.

It is important to try and get as accurate an estimate as possible before you begin your attic conversion.

All of this is made easier and more efficient if you work with a professional architect to help you draw up plans that will make the best use of both the available space and the budget that you have allotted to your project. When converting an attic there are a number of building code issues, such as safe exit strategies and adequate access form the lower levels. An architect will be familiar with all of these issues and can help stop you from making costly mistakes along the way.

Be flexible. It is no one’s fault when issues arise, it is just the reality of renovation projects. Try to be reasonable with your expectations. Unless your trades people are constantly tardy, leaving early and always seem to be on a coffee break, don’t nag them. They know their job and how long the tasks take. Hovering over people trying to work makes them feel uncomfortable and self conscious. Chances are they will do a much better and more efficient job if just left to work without someone looking over their shoulder.
