Hello to all,
I have a dillema.
I live in a house that was built 3 years ago, the loft space is massive and I want to store some stuff up there. However, the insulation is at least 100mm above the joists so it's not possible to simply board over it. Neighbours have tried and ended up popping their ceiling boards with the compression. I also don't want to compramise the loft insulation by removing it.
I figure I need to raise some paralell beams and fix them in a crossways direction to the joists. The problem is I can't find anything to raise the beams up with.
Does anybody know if there's an off the shelf bit of ironwork that will do the job and hold the weight (100KG max)?
Or is there an alternative?
I daren't start messing around doing joints into the joists as this might weaken the roof.
Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
