In most new housing, attic spaces are not part of the interior space of the house and are not easily converted into usable floor area and represent a lost opportunity. With advanced planning, alternative approaches are available to support the roof while providing sufficient clear space below for one or more rooms. Attic spaces can be finished as a part of the construction of a home or as your budget allows and the need arises.
