Looking to put plasterboards on the garage ceiling and some down lighters, not a massive amount of heavy stuff is currently stored there (primarily boxes etc) but I think it would be a good idea to reinforce (existing joint size approx 6mx7.5cmx 4cm distance apart approx 56cm)
The way that I am thinking of doing it as follows and my questions are below
Cable for down lighters. Strengthen existing joists. Loft boards for storage. Add insulation. Screw plasterboard Connect lights Add loft hatch and ladder Plastering. Painting
Looking for advice below on the following steps please:
Loft boards for storage.
That's how the current boards are (pieces of timbers that don't go all the way so the middle bit is empty for access)
Also there are pieces of timber that travel laterally at the top and bottom of the garage and was wondering if they server a purpose or they can be removed (it would be harder to board it along with them in place)
