DIY Walls For The Loft

Following on in The Loft Series after the stuctural floor are the walls

these are best constructed within the roofspace where the floor provides a safe large working platform for fabrication 

 

 

The walls are designed to enclose the loft and to support the rafters & roof.

Cut collar ties that previously passed through the loft will need to be trimmed & attached to these walls. Brace and fix  the wall framing to the existing structure ready for lining.

Re: DIY Walls For The Loft

G'day @BIM_Engineer Chris, is there any way that you can post higher definition diagrams of your plans, more specifically, the exploded detail images? Maybe it's just me, but I can't make much out of it in the current format, & enlarging a "View Image", just makes it blurry?
