    • duplicates merged. "Your Projects" was wrong section.

    Is it possible to put loft boards on the area shown in the picture? Won’t have anything heavy on it mostly boxed of baby clothes and the odd box of light electricals. There’s currently 2 thin strips of wood running the length of the centre, it’s very thin and I’m guessing it was used to space out the prebuilt roof sections when the house was built (in 2005) would it be ok to remove these so can board right the way across? Thanks in advance for any advice.

    No-one seems to have objected! :)
    You might get more luck with replies, if you post in the Floors, stairs and lofts section.
    As a DIY'er, I am not fully qualified to answer this, but I don't see any issues with boarding that space and removing the wood planks - the rafter's look a decent size for a new'ish build.
    Good luck!
