The Workshop community can help with your home improvement projects.
Following on in The Loft series is the floor .
The Structural Floor will need to be designed and certified by an Engineer
Points to consider when determining the type of flooring system
Because of the above factors The floor has been designed to sit on walls above the ceiling with sufficent clearance to the ceiling joists & beam members
The floor can also be prefabricated on the gound and re-assembled in the roof
For support beams spanning short distances I've use Timber LVL Beams
For Beams spanning larger distances I've used bolted Prefab Steel Truss Beams
These beams will not be seen from within the loft once the walls to the loft are installed
The exploded view (down to up) is in sequence to the way it will be installed
Hope you find it useful
