Will work, not sure how well but the only problem may be a tricky swr issue. Everything depends really on how spacious your loft is. Try to keep it in as much free space as possible would be what I would probably do. Also don't forget about the directional properties you will have best in 2 directions. The ends of each 1/2 of the dipole will be affected most in a negative way.

If your Dipole is in a 'straight line' horizontally, then it will be very directional.

If you can get it in an inverted V (ie upside down V shape), with the angle between the two elements (sides) of the dipole at 90 degrees, then it will be almost omnidirectional, and the radiation pattern will be oval shaped.
