Attic Conversion

An attic conversion is the process of transforming

An attic conversion is the process of transforming an unused or underutilized attic space into a functional and livable area, such as a bedroom, office, or storage space. This often involves adding stairs, insulation, electrical and plumbing systems, and windows to make the space comfortable and usable.

Cost of an Attic Conversion

The cost of an attic conversion depends on a variety of factors, including the size of the attic space, the complexity of the job, and any additional features required. The cost can range from $35,000 for a basic attic conversion to over $100,000 for a more complex job. This cost typically includes all the necessary materials, labour, and permits needed to complete the job. It is important to remember that the cost can vary depending on the size of the project and any special features that may be required. Additionally, the cost of any additional features, such as Velux windows, skylights, and insulation, should also be taken into consideration when budgeting for the project.

In Ottawa, obtaining a building permit is a crucial step when planning a new addition to your home. A building permit ensures that the proposed construction meets the necessary building codes and safety standards, as well as adheres to local zoning bylaws. Magnolia Construction will help you apply for a building permit for your Attic Conversion. We will submit detailed plans and specifications of the proposed addition to the City of Ottawa’s Building Services department.
