Mid loft bed – Constructing a bedroom in a loft in the attic or garage can expand a residential living space. If an adult child returns to the nest or in-law moves, it’s a good way to use space to create personal information. Since the roof, the walls and the floor are already in place, it can be cheaper than adding an extension to the house and since the ceiling area is attached you can work with a more flexible schedule. Be sure to get a building permit before starting any actual work. Build a staircase access to the loft bedroom. Use 2 at 12 board strings to form the sawmill sides that each stairway has. Use 2 of 8 boards for each step flat surface. Hire an electrician to redirect wires from the box breaker to accommodate new outlets and lighting fixtures.
