How much does it cost to finish a walk up attic?

Our house is 15 years old. We’ve lived in it for 5. We have a walk up attic with outlets and 2 dormer windows. How much would this cost to finish? We want it to be very simple. No bathroom. Just carpet for flooring. It’s about 1000 square feet.


Oh and we have central air and gas heat. We’d like to have heat and ac up there too.

    Given this a national and international website and we have no clue as to where this walk up attic is located. You are better off getting quotes from three local tradesmen and taking it from there.

    Well, you need to make a specific list of what you are planning.   Then guess what you think it would reasonably cost to do each item on the list.  Then triple that cost.  That is the order of magnitude estimate for you to use to decide if it is really worth it to you.   What you might do is do it yourself, item by item over the cost of a couple of years.  One thing you need to think about is the increase in your taxes and if you need permits and air conditioning.
