Right after much deciding we are finally going to try and turn our loft into a storage / playroom. The loft size is 7m by 7m we have good head height, As we are not doing this to regs by friend who converts lofts for a living is going to be using 4x2 timbers, They 4.8 in length each and we have 18 of them altogether, We are using 22mm floor boards. We are havign a staircase put in that will have a fire door at the bottom before you enter. The walls we are putting insulation inbtween the rafters like rockwool type as it is cheap at the moment at £3 a roll so we got 20 of them from homebase, My friend then said we would have to put a clear ploy sheet over them to stop sweating before we put the plasterboard on.
I have been reassured by him that the floor will be nice and secure and able to take the weight of kids playing up their on Xbox etc. As I am a worry freak I want to get the opinions of others also that maybe in the trade. The two main large joists run 9ft apart.
I have included some pictures of the loft from photobucket so just hope they come through as not sure how to add them on here
