And a structural floor in the attic so you can use it for storage - or finish it to use it as a room. And windows in the gable ends, so you can use the finished attic space as a bedroom.

This reminded me. We had a large attic area over the garage that we had rough plumbed for a future bathroom and wired with outlets and over head lights and the wiring was also installed for it's own heat pump. Both gable ends had windows, there were 2 skylights on one side of the roof. Access was through a regular size door from the 2nd floor family room
