We had to add a "second floor" over our living room to connect the second floor left side of the house to the second floor right side of the house.
I am obviously not done yet. More pictures to come.
Wow, very ambitious. I assume that there was some good timber to tie into around the perimeter. What is the size of the expanse? How did you lift the joists up level to attach? This project is obviously not for everyone! Kudos and looks awesome!
I changed a 3ft walk way to a 8ft x 13ft loft because no carpenters would.
Secure side 2x10's plates and brace between with 2x8's & joist hangers.
Tie it all together with plenty of deck screws and 3/4 " sub floor staggered
sheeting. Vertical support of 2x8 on interior wall disguised as pillar .
This is amazing - I would love to see it once it's completely finished!
That is an incredible space!
