The unique challenges associated with finishing an attic space are:

(1) the sequence of work must depend on the order in which inspections must be done,

(2) wall support,

(3) how to work with the slope of the roof and the angles of the walls,

(4) working in a very confined area,

(5) providing access to the attic,

(6) the need to work around a furnace or air conditioner/heat pump,

(7) deciding if the space is adequate for the proposed use,

(8) installing adequate ventilation,

(9) providing adequate light, and

(10) providing emergency exit options.
