You’re already half way there. The roof is already in place. The foundations are already in place. Adding some light in will make it a more liveable space. Depending on the size of your loft you could make an extra room for your house.
Extending into the roof can add up to 15% to the value of your home*, according to some estate agents. Ideally, you need 8ft (2.4m) clearance, although you can still get a useful room from as little as 7ft (2.1m) headroom. If your roof was built using purlins, rather than trussed rafters, it is easier to convert into loft space. Some roof spaces are more easily converted than others.

The Energy Saving Trust says:
“Insulating your loft could save you around £145 per year on your energy bills if you don’t have any insulation there at the moment. If everyone in the UK topped up their loft insulation to 270mm, around £520m would be saved each year!”
