Hi everyone, i am from London and new on this blog website.
Just looking for some tips on how to build a flat roof in a new studio i have started to rent. Its for woodworking and i was hoping to use the roof to store wood and the odd few peices of material. I also wouldn’t mind being able to do some drawing up there too, so it would need to take my weight.
I was looking into it and my situation is this:
i have 1 solid brick wall i can screw the joists into and the others are wooden. Ofcourse hanging joists on wood isn’t ideal and especially for taking weight.
I was thinking of having a basic stud wall made which would sit flat. And having the 3X2 on thier side for maximum strength.
Basically looking for any tips you can provide to add strength and make it safe, or if its not possible!!
Thanks again everyone and i hope to give any tips i can to anyone else, so please ask.
