Room In Roof Insulation

 

A “room-in-roof” is a space that is built in the place, where you would normally build a roof or loft space. It must have a fixed staircase access and egress. There are visible sloping ceilings in the rooms, unless there are full width dormer windows. In that case, you may not find any sloping ceilings in the room. Normally, it is implemented in a converted roof space e.g. the attic room or a loft, or it is just part of the whole design.
