Simply Build It

If you need to ask such a question then ask yourself do you need to get a professional in.

You will need a structural surveyor to work out the new joist requirements, party wall issues etc.

Oh and don't forget to inform your local buiding inspectors as it needs to pass all the required regs - a certificate is then issued when the work is finished - mine took 5 years from start to finish mainly down to me being slow - I got a pro in to do all the structure then finished it of myself with the help of a plasterer.
