Floating a Frame Over Insulation in a Truss Roof Loft in Northfield

New build houses always have a lot more insulation in the loft as regulations have increased significantly over the years. It is now common to see a minimum of 270mm of insulation in the loft and often we see 400mm. The only way to keep this amount of insulation in place and intact when boarding out a section, is to float a frame over the top. It is very important not to squash down the insulation. You want to allow air to circulate so that moisture can escape.

We floated a timber frame 450mm over the ceiling joists and laid an 18mm tongue & groove chip board floor. 

This floor boarding job was done in a newly built house.

Boarding Out a Loft Around Truss Beams in Welford-on-Avon

This house had an inverted truss roof which made it difficult to use as a storage space because of all the diagonal trusses in the loft. We floated a timber frame 300mm above the exsisting ceiling to allow the insulation to sit without being squashed. Cutting out around all the trusses is a long and slow process but once complete, makes this space very usable.

This was done in a 5 bedroom detached house in Welford-on-Avon, CV37.
