Storage loft bed – Storage space has been a problem for homeowners for a long time. Many people think that building a loft in a small barn is a way to add more space to storage. Although it can be a simple project for woodworking homeowners, the weight limits of the built-in ceiling should be provided. Explore the weight limits of 2 by 4S and 2 by 6S when they are stretched in width shed. Find studs in the walls of the area where the ceiling is to be built. Measure and cut a piece of plywood the desired length of the ceiling. Be sure it’s 8 inches long. Attach the plywood to the wall knobs with tire screws. Next, secure 2 by 4 drawer’s hinges to the plywood with tire screws. Keep them within 12 to 16 inches apart. Place 2- by-4S in the beam hangers and secure them to the hangers with tire screws. These become ceiling beams on this point.
Storage loft bed, measure from the walls of the shed to the desired width of the storage area and make a trademark. If you use the full width of the shed, divide the width by three and mark the bars accordingly. Measure down from the buckle to the bottom of the ceiling beams and cut twice the number of litters used. These are for hangers and will be used to strengthen ceiling beams allowing for more weight. Secure braces for buckles and ceiling beams with tire screws. Be sure the braces are in place as this will allow maximum strength possible.
Measure and cut a piece of 3/4 inch plywood to fit the top of the ceiling beams in the desired storage loft bed area. Fix it to the ceiling beams with tire screws. Allow space enough from the end of the plywood to the door of the shed to see what is stored in the attic. Placement of ceiling beams closer together can eliminate the need for plywood floors. Do not leave electrical tools unattended near children. Do not build a loft that is lower than 84 inches to prevent damage.
