Garage loft....

hibiscus53March 10, 2007

We're purchasing a home with a two car garage. Has anyone done a loft or above space for storage? Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hint as to present garage construction? Attached? Flat roof? Pitched roof? What is the difference between a loft and garage storage?

ron thanks for your reply. The garage is a two car attached. The house is about 10 yrs old. Wood frame.

I'm guessing, but is the whole garage one open space? No floor above the walls? Just rafter ties half way to the ridge beam? No reason you can't build a platform for storage.
Issues to deal with will be spanning the length(18-20 feet) without any support underneath. You can put support but then you have a pole in the middle of the garage. These are just guesses based on the info available.
