attic coversion

Hi everyone,

I have a one story ranch style home, & I am looking to covert the attic into a bedroom & bath, by raising the pitch of the roof.. My home is set on a slab, with a 4" footing on top of it. Is this a possible conversion????? If so does anyone have any suggestions to what type of support I should use in the walls on the first level???:

Any help is greatly appreciated

Any contractor that you decide to put the second floor on for you will take the necessary steps to reinforce the first floor if necessary. In most cases it's not difficult to do.
