cool the attic, if it wasn't properly insulated when the home was built.
Either way, an attic can be a great amenity. Deciding on if it is right for you and your family home is another story. :)
finishing an attic could have different pros and cons than a 100 year old home.
Pros of any aged home: Additional square footage to enjoy, live in, can add this on to your square footage when selling your home.
Cons, depending on the age - it may not be structurally sound, or may need additional heating/
love idea of attic being used as home office and or media room
converted attic that allows enough room for personal touches such as a loveseat, a rug, Chinese garden stool end tables, decorative accessories and bookshelves. Cozy and professional, one would not be embarrassed to bring a client by for meetings.
