I will be moving to a new state in two months, and the people I will be living with had a giant, beautiful prefab house put up on a hill last year. It has a basement with one open side (like a split-level), two regular stories above that, and a large "attic"/ 3rd story with two dormers. They have not done anything to the attic yet and asked that I take charge of paying for insulation and a wall to split the space, and that I provide paint/wallpaper plus whatever other furnishings I need. I've been stressing about how to put furniture up there, since the walls are slanted. I don't want to waste space or make the room smaller than it has to be. I have a lot of possessions and need practical places to keep them (not in permanent storage, but in accessible places). What is the best way to deal with this? Do you have any suggestions? What should I expect to pay for a single wall and adequate insulation? I don't need a precise figure, only something to give me an idea of what I'm getting into. Thank you for your help!
