    Think the 2 x 8's every 16" will be sufficient. What about lateral anchoring? Should I just use
    "X" 2x4 braces at the ends of the 2x8's to maintain the 16" spacing ? I am sure there is a more
    "standar...

    What is the typical attic storage / loft storage dead weight (PSF) rated for? Dead weight would
    be higher than live weight right since your going to be storing more than living. I don't think
    I unders...

    I am not sure... I think if I got 12' length 2 x 6 it might go edge to edge with a "joint" in
    the middle wall. I will have to get back up in the attic and measure my room walls. Appraisal

    I do have a couple main walls that run perpendicular to the trusses. I believed it is a load

    The first picture may be wrong, it was the cleaner picture I was able to find on Google
    images.OK, so after more research and spending more time up in the attic and running some load
    bearing simulatio...

    So if it is done as it looks like in The PDF link 2 x 6 's need to be ran on the base. And all
    reinforcements need to be made prior to removing the "old" sections of the truss. Has any one
    followed up...

    I was thinking with only 1 truss being modified it might be a little different. It also looked
    like on searching, other large projects (using Google search) if used the tipple up of 2 x 4 on
    either si...

    I have a question about adjusting a single (out of 12 total trusses spaced at 24") attic truss
    that is in the shape as below: trusses are all 2" x 4" construction. I am not making this into
    a livable...
