You may also have moisture/condensation problems. You appear to have no soffit venting, with the insulation plugging that air space up. I would describe that attic as a mould farm just waiting to happen. Attics have air circulation for a reason. That seems to be a dead air space.
You should research conditioned or unventilated attics. It has become more popular in recent years.
In my environment, it's a non-starter. Attic air circulation and insulation are done for a reason. It actually cools the house. That being said, I have lived in old houses with rooms like that which are insulated and not vented properly, with wood floors. Hot as hell in summer and cold as a an ice cube in winter, even with air conditioning and heating.--
