Want to make the most of the space in your house? Have you considered building out the attic space? If the roof slope and structure permit, the attic can be a real treat of a space if done right.

The attic can also be a good location for a giant walk-in closet. The sloping ceilings make the attic a perfect spot for built-in storage along the walls. Skylights and features such as built in benches or islands can make the attic closet a luxurious treat.
