A couple of you may know i'm in the midst of a loft conversion, for myself. 2 beroom, with a small ensuite.

Pretty decent amount of room in there, but plenty of awkward bits to contend with.
Doing in my 'spare' time, along side my day job.
Builder/chippy helping with certain aspects like fitting the velux windows and giving me a pont in the right direction now and then...

Few pics so far... Trusses everywhere... Girder trusses, Fink trusses.... you name it, theyre in there!

So I ordered a fair bit of timber to get me started....
Full pack of 5.4m 8x2s. Plus a fair few 5x2 new rafters...

Bit of an unusual setup on the steelwork, ridge beams and twin ridge beam setup of sorts, cantilevered across a reinforced truss... Steel erectors nightmare connections...
