Small Boards Nailed to Adjacent Loft Joists

Postby » Thu Aug 30, 2018 3:32 pm

Hi Everyone,

I've got a question about some small random boards in my loft as I am unsure what they are for.

I've noticed small boards nailed to adjacent loft joists in my loft. I have no idea what they are for. I assume they might be there so people have somewhere for their feet when working in the loft. They don't look like they have any structural functions but I prefer to ask as I am not a builder or roofer.

Is it safe for me to remove them as it would make it easier for me to put some floor boards down so I can store some light items such as suitcases.

I look forward to your advice.

Many thanks,
