First time homeowner. It's pretty amazing how all those - "We can fix that" problems you noticed during walkthroughs remain undone after three years.

I spent 13 summers as a kid working in my grandpas's woodshop, following around my master electrician/engineer/all-world-handyman dad, or doing random construction crew work. I've dabbled at everything except plumbing, and I'd say I'm an expert at holding. Holding the flashlight, holding the dumb end of the tape measure, and holding heavy things above my head while someone digs in a toolbox.

comment Is it possible to convert a truss attic into living space?
I'm not sure how to make a "real" answer out of this question, but yes I've done it and yes you have the major components down. Another consideration is an egress point depending on the purpose of the living space.
