I'm hoping someone that has had a loft conversion or any roofers (is that the correct term) may be able to help me. I toyed with the idea of getting the loft converted professionally but after quotes of £15k minimum I decided against it as I live in a 3 bedroom house, there's only two of us and it was just a luxury not a necessity. So, what we want now is to just board out the loft so we can walk around and maybe put a velux window in, then the loft would just be used for storage and light exercise equipment. The problem is that our house was built in the 1930's and we have a truss roof which means the roof beams run diagonally from ceiling to floor in a 'w' shape, so there is hardly any useable space. So what we would like is to pay a professional to relocate the beams so we can make full use of the space. Does anyone know what this would involve and any idea of the cost? Am I being realistic with a budget of £3k maximum? Everything else we can do ourselves but unless the beams are moved we can't really use the space at all.
