Due to the current situation I am hoping to build a small wall in my loft.
I'm not worried about the floor I have jumped up and down on it plenty and it's still fine, I am though concerned about the strength of the beams for the climbing wall itself.
There are the main beams that hold the roof up then where the wall would be attached are extra beams coming down in the middle of the loft. I'm not sure how to link photos on here but anyone done anything similar or fancy just telling me it will be strong enough so I can tell the missus that some experts have told me it's fine!
Hi. I did exactly the same as you are proposing a few years ago. My wall is attached to the stays coming down from main roof joists to the loft floor. Creates about a 25 degree overhanging face. The wall is still in perfect nick after years of use. Can't do it now but tomorrow eve I could send you some pics. If you want me to, PM me.
