Need advice regarding attic expansion

9 years ago

Hello All, I recently bought a brick English bungalow in Chicago. It is about 60 years old and I have been toying with idea of expanding the attic roof. Basically it will convert my current English style bungalow to Georgian style home. The attic currently has two bedrooms, each 14X10 and a full bath. By expanding the attic ceiling, each bedroom would then be 14X22 size. So there is a significant amount of space for me upstairs. Please see the attached picture to get an idea. Please advise if anyone has remodeled their house in the similar fashion. Do I need to be wary of anything? How much would it cost and whether it will enhance the beauty and the value of my house?
