It is about 2.1 metres / 210 cm / 7 feet / 84 inches for a loft conversion

If you can stand up in your loft you are doing well. Don’t be shy, measure the height with a tape measure. The ridge is the centre point of your roof, this will be where you measure from and down to your feet.

Richard will double check the height of your attic loft on his FREE ESTIMATE visit to you.

If your attic loft is under 6 foot and you are unable to stand up, your loft conversion will struggle to pass building regulations. There are other options e.g. lowering the ceilings of the rooms below, this will add to your budget. See Richard’s favourites n Pinterest for other ways to convert your attic loft.
