Answer From Our Expert

The method that you have suggested for boarding out the loft is good and will enable you to ensure insulation is maintained to a reasonable depth.

All lofts have a residual capacity and you should be able to store materials within your boarded loft.

We would advise if you do have very heavy items or a combined group of heavy items that these should be placed near support walls or be distributed around the loft.

Look forward to seeing some photos of your finished project.
