If you are undertaking a boarding out exercise as suggested and using the space for storage you should not need.

One area I would suggest you consider very carefully is the addition of insulation.

If this is done incorrectly, you are likely to create condensation and introduce a damp environment that could be more problematic to you in the end.

If you are altering the roof structure to make a new hatch you should have this checked by an engineer as you could be altering a key structural element.

We can review all of the above with you and ensure that your work is compliant with current regulations.

Should you wish to discuss this further please contact us at where we review your needs in more detail.
