Why choose an attic construction?
The best way to increase the usable area of your house is to replace the eaves roof of the house with an attic. Thus, you can gain one, two or even three additional rooms without taking up extra space in the area and without getting involved in the very time consuming processes of pouring a new foundation and erecting walls. And to learn how to properly build an attic, you must take into account all the stages of its layout, from the calculations to the roofing and finishing of the resulting extra rooms.
For all the work to be successful, first of all, you need to make sure that the existing walls (if the superstructure is built in the old house) are able to withstand the additional load. It will depend on this factor whether it is worth starting such a roofing construction project and if so, in what structure of the roof attic it would be better to stop.
It should be noted that the load on the load-bearing walls will increase significantly – due to the larger number of beams, due to the mass of interior decoration of walls and floors, windows and doors, insulation system, as well as all elements of interior filling of attic rooms. All these factors indicate that you should start with the choice of the optimal design of the attic, with calculations, design and plans for future superstructure.

Types of attic superstructures
According to the current building codes, an attic is a room under a roof, which has a height from the ceiling to the ridge of at least 2500 mm. If this parameter is less than the specified limit, then the room is considered an ordinary attic.
- If the vertical shelves that determine the height of the walls of the room have a size of 2500 mm, then the attic space can be considered a complete floor.
- A semi-attic is called an attic space in which the vertical columns are completely absent or if they have a height of 1500 to 1000 mm.
