I am determined to turn an unfinished attic into a bedroom. How do I get started?
My first advice to you is to check out the size of the ceiling joists (the attic's floor joists). When a house is built, the ceiling joists are designed to hold the ceiling and the material on the ceiling, such as the drywall. If you make the attic into a bedroom you need to upgrade the floor joists to support a greater load.
