I need to lay some boarding down in my loft an area of about 2 x 3m
ideally, just for storage of the usual suspects, Christmas trees, old
toys, clothes and suitcases. You know the stuff !
Although capable of doing the work I'm not really sure what I need to
do. If I explain the current set-up could someone please be kind enough
to suggest the next steps. It doesn't need to be ultra smart, just
quick and cheap ideally.
Ok so at the moment there are a load of small rafters (3x2?) which are
approx 1ft apart. Over the top of these are number of larger 4x2
rafters. These rafters combined give a decent height for the newly laid
The span between the larger "top" rafters is 1.7m. I want to lay
flooring across the top of these rafters but clearly I cannot span
1.7m. What should I do ? Should I lay more 4x2 rafters in between the
existing ones to reduce the span to 60cms ?
And one really daft question, how would I fix new rafters across the
top of the existing ones, do they just sit there, do they have brackets
or do they just have a nail through them
As you can tell, I'm flundering a bit, so help appreciated.
