It also requires planning permission approval so you local planning permission application cost must be added on. Another added expense will be the additional design work that may be needed as it is more complicated that a room in roof, or dormer loft conversion. This type of work is likely to cost upwards of £40,000. Some companies will create a package type ready-made room which is fabricated off-site and craned into position.
