I'm closing on a house this week and I would like to start finishing its attic asap to make it an extra bedroom.
The attic has 2 rooms and 1 bathroom. 1 room completely done, bathroom done.
The second room need some work.
all it has is electricity. You see the joist, and the roof. there is also 1 round vent you can see outside from.
as you can tell I'm not an expert. I'm not sure where there is a round vent in the roof. I wanted to ask my inspector but for some reason I didn't.
Anyway I would like to finish this second room.
I read couple of articles and here is what I figured I would need to do.
Attach insulation to the roof and the walls?
But I also read some articles about if its done wrong I can have mold in the attic in couple of years?
Is there an article that shows step by step of what need to be done? or is this a hard job that need to be done by professionals?
I can take pictures in couple of days and post them.
Now is the best time to start a "paper trail" on all your hard work, permits, etc...... for liability, insurance, and re-sale.
And, welcome to the forum!
