Hi everyone. I am remodeling an upstairs bedroom, the home is 1940s/50s construction.
The ceiling in the bedroom has a roof above, the beam going across is the roof beam.
I’d like to beef up the joists so I can build out the attic with some storage. Will sistering 2x4s to the existing joists work out?
I’ve drawn it in blue in attached picture. These would be added at a few of the joists where I’ll add the storage, and would be a single 2×4 spanning the entire length. Screwed together on 16″ staggered with structural screws.
Thanks for any help and insight
