Hi I've just had my loft insulated to 270mm and now have a problem,
where the hell to put all the boxes that came out of it without crushing
the insulation or wrecking the insulation every time I need a box out.
My loft has what I believe is called a purlin beam running around the
loft. The bottom of this purlin is a couple of inches above the top of
the insulation so I'm wondering if I can attach some joist hangers to
hang some 4x2 joists across the span (2.8mtrs) then lay chipboard loft
flooring over them? It should be possible to support the 4x2 in the
middle of the span if necessary but it's not going to be supporting a
huge amount of weight and I'd rather not if possible. It's not going to
be used to walk on, only be crawled on to retrieve/replace boxes,
there's no possibility of it ever being walked on as the loft is only
5ft and will be around 4ft after this.
Does this sound a reasonable plan?
