Make sure you and your loft extension builder are on the same page regarding regulations, which could include anything from planning permission to party wall agreements. In most cases, the professionals in charge of your modern loft conversion will be able to assist with these, and other, points as long as you communicate it before starting the project.
All aspects of your project need to be considered, including the finish of the work, what is included (and what is not) in the build / contract, their estimated timescale, etc.
With a little pre-planning, your loft conversion can be most unique. Depending on your budget, consider eye-catching features that will aid in both visual splendour and functionality – like a skylight. Or a charming Juliet balcony. Or underfloor heating…
