We have installed a loft! We reclaimed some cedar and redwood for this purpose, and they have worked out beautifully. 4 x 4 posts anchored into the side walls support the cedar decking on top. See more pics below:
Even though we are tall guys, there is plenty of headroom underneath this loft. Below you can see that we used some of the remaining square washers (from the floor system anchoring job) to lag the redwood 2 x 4’s into the top plates.
This shot is from underneath the loft, where the kitchen and bathroom will be. A bed will fit nicely “upstairs” and will be a cozy getaway.
Up next we will be making and installing rafters! We can’t wait to have a roof on this tiny home.
