    Loft Office Suitability Query? 2nd Nov 18 at 12:38 PM
    Hi guys. I bought a house that has a huge loft. I want to use the loft as a temporary office space if possible. The loft is already floored and insulated, but the walls of the loft and the ceiling (roof) of the loft is not lined or insulated. There is a nice large velux window in the loft, if this helps answer my question.

    I am basically wanting to use the loft space for my office equipment and in it's current condition, I am aware that it is not possible. Is there any cheap/quick way of being able to use this space as an office? It will have lighting equipment, electricals etc.

    Is it possible to just temporarily cover the beams with things like ThermAll Bubble Insulation? Or cheap insulation boards? And is there anything I would need to do in order for my equipment to remain safe while stored up there?

    I think someone is taking themselves and their opinions way too seriously. Lighten up for goodness' sake.

    I have to see photos of this loft.

    Anyway, if the floor is at least 6 inch* deep it may have been done to a standard that is ok for storage.

    * depending on the span.. consult a structural engineer.
