I should add, I will never sand a floor again, I did a shit job and there was not satisfaction from doing it myself.
It's a strange thing, knowing that with enough time you could do a better job at quite a lot of things, but also valuing your own time and getting people in to do it, then spending too much time making sure it's done right.
I'm aware this is going straight into the Golf Club thread, but I stand by it.
Is it a thin layer of compost, or a couple of inches deep? I find gardening tips a bit like diy tips "Mix it to the right consistency, not too thin, not too thick". Once you know it seems easy, but if you are not confident, it's a nightmare.
Ha, the 'My wife' in that guardian article is someone I know.
Thanks. So can I do all this now, or is it better to wait and do it in spring?

One thing to note with loft extensions- The house we bought had it done already, good finish but the bigger room is too narrow to fit a double bed where it would logically be. The sockets are there for a bedside table either side but there would be less than 6 inches to actually get round the bottom of the bed. I suspect the insulation and boarding were not fully taken into account when the layout was decided.
What @Gewürzt said. It was probably done on the cheap for additional space but there is unlikely a quick fix to make it a 'proper' bedroom that meets regs (otherwise the current owners would have done it). There are all sorts of rules like insulation, stair specification, ceiling height, landing size at top of stairs etc that need to be met. Could be that starting from scratch would even be cheaper.
I would personally value it as slightly higher more attractive than a 2 bed, but not comparable to a genuine 3 bed. If you want a real 3 bed you will have to do a legit conversion that will cost £££
Dibs dt swiss wheels please.
