I have loose cellulose insulation in my attic and I will be adding several more inches this winter to increase the R value. However, that means that all of my support beams will be buried in insulation and I can no longer rest plywood on them and use the attic for storage as I currently do.

What is the best way to increase the height of the attic floor so I can have my additional insulation and storage? I could lay down additional wood beams, but that seems like it would add quite a bit of weight to the house. Is there an easier, cheaper way to have my insulation and keep some storage?

Hope it's just light suff your trying to put up there. By far most attics were never built for storage.
