    Hi All,

    I'm planning to board the loft of my new build house. Initially I had planned on using the loft legs and loft boarding panels that interconnect, however, the loft legs feel flimsy.

    I would like to run CLS timber the opposite direction to the current joints and fix the boarding panels directly in to this. Would the existing joist be able to take the extra weight from this or would i need to use loft legs?

    Thanks in advance.

    Joey
