I have had several people (including contractors) try to figure out where the attic in my home is - and I've come to the conclusion there is no inside entrance to the attic.
I know it has one because the roof peaks and also there are two vents.
I had one guy tell me some old homes had outside entrance only attics. This house was built in 1925.
Is this possible? If so, is there a way to create an entrance to the attic inside? Is it even worth doing?
I don't think the attic is tall enough to become a 2nd story type of deal - though that would be awesome if possible. Since noone has been in it, I'm not even sure what is in there (I may not want to know LOL)!
In the late '70's, I framed a few houses with outside attic accesses. Figure where you want it, check the area with an inspection hole, and put it in. 22"x30" is code minimum, with........ 30"minimum height above the ceiling (clear headroom). Do it in a hallway, easier to head the ceiling joists off.
