I just bought this 50 years old multi unit house (side by side). The small apartment has a big attic space that I want to convert to a heated study room or a bedroom.
There is no vent in the attic execpt the two big windows on each side.
The floor is filled with selulose, and half finished with pine woods.
The ceiling is insulated R30. All sides (front, back, sides) of the insulation R30 rolls are covered with aluminum foil. I remember somebody saying that it makes no good against condensation.
The walls had nothing but I insulated with R13. The picture is taken before R13 insulation.
Before I start doing any drywall and kneewalls, what are my options to do insulation job the right way? Should I replace the ceiling and floor insulation? Should I install suffit vents, ceiling or wall vents? I appreciate all recommendations.

17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?
