A garage loft is the perfect way to create more space without interrupting your home with a complete renovation. There are a number of applications for your garage loft, but all of them require a way to access them. Whether you have a garage storage loft or a finished apartment, you want a safe and durable way to reach the space.

I constructed my loft as I would any exterior deck project. Because my garage ceiling height is 10.5 feet and I am short (5 feet 8 inches ), I was able to construct a loft that I can actually walk beneath. This is a great feature but it is not necessary in all situations. Believe me, the extra space you gain in the loft will more than offset the few times you have to stoop to go under a lower loft.

A loft. High ceilings can make up for limited floor space in smaller garages. Consider a loft for storage, as in this garage. This loft almost acts like an attic, with a low-clearance ceiling height and retractable ladder. The railing ventilates the space and cut down on building costs.

Garage Loft Storage

Storage is one of the most common uses for your garage. Most of the time, your car is park in the middle and storage is lining the walls. While garage organization goes a long way with perimeter storage, you can create much more space with a storage loft. By lofting the space, you’re leaving your car’s parking spot open and still getting as much storage as possible.

If you have limited space, you can still fit a single bedroom loft into your garage. This would mean that whoever is living in the loft would use the main house’s utilities, such as the bathroom and kitchen. Because this can be inconvenient, many homeowners are option for a full garage apartment.

DEAR TIM: The past owners of our home built, or I should say threw together, a questionable loft on one side of the garage. Thank goodness it hangs over my husband’s car and not mine. He is hoping to build a more professional and sturdy loft on my side of the garage and possibly secure or rebuild the one on his side. We just haven’t found any plans or directions to guide him. Help us Obiwan the Builder! Mary P., Streamwood, IL

Step 4 Finish the Ledgers It’s a good idea to double up the rim joists for added strength. To make sure the rim joists are even all the way around where the new loft will be, use a level. The crown of a board is the part where the wood bends. To check to see if your board has a crown, look down the edge. You can take the crown out by yourself by using the piece of lumber as a jack. For added support around the newly installed ledger boards, screw in lag bolts. Lag bolts are strong, and durable. For an attractive way of giving the joists that will go across the loft something to sit on, add another 2” x 2” ledger board around the bottom of the loft framing. Pro Tip When working with a crown board, check to see if the board is level by lining it up to another board. It’s important to check the crown, because if not, then your flooring will not be level. A 2” x 2” ledger board can be simply made by ripping a 2” x 4” down the center. A 2” x 4” piece of lumber is generally closer to 1-3/4 by 3-3/4.
