The web resource below is an excellent starting point for addressing FHA loan requirements. Regarding your specific questions, more information would be needed to properly respond. The conversion would need to have been permitted by the municipality, air conditioned (assuming the rest of the house is, and so on....) The additional sq footage gained from the conversion should also be recorded with the taxing authority.
