building a mezzanine
I would like to build a mezzanine for lighter storage in my shop.
I figure it like this. the size will be 12' x 7'
it will be fastened to outside 2x6 structure on one end and one side.
2x8 joists will give me better headroom above and below.
I will double the outside end and side.
5/8' plywood floor.
Anyone know how to find the weight of this?
i would like to hang it from th etrusses and not sure how.
i am doubling th e2x4 trusses in the area and thought to hang it from them .
i would tie it in to both upper and lower boards of the trusses.
thinking maybe 2x6 at 6' intervals
If anyone can help on this issue it would be appreciated.
