There are millions of homes in North America that have some usable attic space that could easily be turned into a home office, children's play room, organized storage room, or just a small reading corner. Starting a business that specializes in the installation of small and basic attic rooms may be the business opportunity that you have been searching for. Providing that you have a good working knowledge of construction practices, as well as knowledge of the most common type of home construction in your community, there is a good chance that you will be able to predesign and construct one or two models of the basic attic rooms. These can then either be sold to customers on a do-it-yourself basis, or the customer could hire you to do the installation. Entry into the attic space can be easily gained with installation of a simple pull-down attic staircase. Prior to starting this type of home improvement venture, you should check with local building officials in terms of compliance with building code regulations.
