So tentatively decided into getting the loft converted (although having read the financial doom thread maybe a small holding and firearms would be a better investment.)
We're going to square off the slopey roof to form a gable(?) and build a boxy thing on the back (dormer)?
We've had a couple of builders around and have a few more coming around and they are all (unsurpringly) recommending different things. Apparently the space is big enough to have two ok sized bedrooms and a bathroom up there, we were thinking one room and a shower room.
As we may as well change our ageing CH system at the same time and because we have the cold water tank in the loft -
1st chappy says to go for a combi boiler - remembering threads on here that this is not optimal for what would be a four bedroom two bathroom house?
Second chappy says go for megaflo system (spendy)
Insulation - first chappy had pictures of what looked like aluminium foil type insulation - never seen this before, second chappy said the more usual kingspan/celotex stuff.
So a bit bemused by the options, any hints tips from the STW hive mind?
