Attic Conversions – Important things to Note

When remodeling or renovating a home, the attic is one of the areas that is most often overlooked. In many homes, the attic is a place that is used for storing seasonal items if it gets visited at all. Attics are often a few hundred square feet of space that goes to waste because the homeowner thinks that making it into a usable area would be impractical or too expensive.

Buchanan Builders can help you turn your attic from a winter home for spiders into a year round living area that increases the value of your house. Imagine what you would do with a few hundred more square feet to play around with. You could create an office, a den, a media room, or even an extra bedroom or two. The possibilities are nearly endless and Buchanan Builders wants to help you make the most of your attic.

With decades of experience in home construction, design, and remodeling, Buchanan Builders has what it takes to help you complete your attic conversion. Some of the ideas our previous customers have come up with include:


Home Office or Den – Imagine having a place to work or do your banking that is well out of the way of the normal traffic flow of your home. A basement attic or den provides you with the space and seclusion you need to get work done without being bothered by people passing through or by the noise from adjoining rooms.


Spare Bedrooms – Every homeowner dreams of having a bedroom that can be used just for family or friends when they want to sleep over, and with an attic conversion by Buchanan Builders you can have just that. Your guests will have a spacious and private bedroom all to themselves and you can rest easy knowing that you didn't spend a fortune to give it to them.


Media Room – A room dedicated solely to TV viewing or video games is impractical in most single level homes. However, an attic conversion gives you the freedom to design a room dedicated to home entertainment systems. Buchanan Builders can not only help turn your attic in a room big enough to use as a media center, we can also pre-wire the space to accommodate surround sound and streaming video devices.
