Framing a garage loft
Thanks for the help. I was thinking of going with 2x10s. Since the width for the ledger boards is only 6', if I put them 12" OC, I would need 6 2x10s. One would be on the back wall (could be mounted to the studs like a ledger board) and another facing out like a rim joist. That would leave 4 inside the frame attached with joist hangers to the 6' ledger boards on each end.
As for the joist facing the garage (rim joist), what would be the best way to attach this since I don't have posts in the corners? Would bolting into the ledger board work?
