The transformation of the attic into the room
When building a two-story cottage, special attention should be paid to the roof and the attic. These parts of the house should be built from durable materials. You can choose composite, natural, shingles, metal, slate, flange roofing, the main thing is that the materials are of high quality. In addition, on the roof it is worthwhile to install various security elements: snow guards, fences, weirs and stairs in case of an accident or a fire.
By the way, to climb to the roof you need to install an attic ladder. Today you can buy a garret ladder in Novosibirsk, which is mounted on the ceiling, which means it does not take up much space. There are metal stairs, there are wooden ones, there are even those on which fire protection has been applied, which is able to restrain fire due to the fire-retardant layer. Installation of the ladder must be correct, then it will be reliable and durable.
Many people prefer to make another room or room out of the attic. In this case, you need to ensure that a sufficient amount of light enters the attic. To do this, install roof windows.True, if you make a room out of the attic, you need to properly warm and equip it.
Skylights began to be used in architecture for a very long time, but so far, they have not lost their original meaning: attic lighting. They can be of various sizes and shapes, can be wooden or metal-plastic. They can also have different opening mechanisms: along the central axis, combined opening, with access to the roof. Some install windows in the attic only to decorate the roof, dilute the design of the building.
Moreover, a room located in the attic under the roof of a house may not be used for living. For example, if you have a lot of valuable things, which are best preserved in a warm and well protected room from moisture, the attic can be arranged as a storeroom. This option can be considered much more easily possible, since it does not ask for a large cost of equipment.
