Lofty ambitions

Many of us have houses with lofts or attics, but often they are cold, dank places chockful of lumber - remnants of childhood that we can't bring ourselves to dispose of, or obsolete items that 'might just come in handy' someday. Where else would we store those boxes of old school books, or a once voguish black-and white TV set with knobs, or the inflatable dingy with the puncture that was never fixed?

Sid and Bernie of Stafford decided that they'd had enough of scrabbling precariously up a ladder only to be met by the sickly smell of mouldering cardboard boxes and fabrics. Could they convert their limited loft space into a clean, dry, well-aired storage space that wasn't a purgatory for all concerned? And would it meet their requirements to maintain or enhance the existing insulation properties of the loft?
