I posted this new loft sometime back. It was an invitation to fall 9 plus feet to the concrete or onto the cabinet saw. I added the stairs and rail recently. The solid panel in the middle is a 12 foot long drop rail to allow use of the front end loader on the tractor to move bulky or heavy loads. The drop rail is a torsion box sandwiched by two layers of 7/16 OSB. All the rail parts are common 2 X 4 or ripped framing lumber.
Thanks for looking.

The wood stove is going under the stairs after the addition of some heat shields. This will allow me to warm up and duct heat into the finishing room behind the panel / roller door to the left of the stairs. Should make this winter much more productive.

What a great looking shop space! I remember your other post about your loft. The rails and stairs look like a very smart add.

Looking good. I have a loft in my shop that I use to store plans, bills and a few cats… It makes a great office space above the dust.
