Hi there, am currently planning on increasing insulation in my loft to 6" more than there is now. This means the new floor of my loft needs to be 8" higher. In order to do this i was planning on using 2 lengths of 4" x 2" timber on top of each existing beam. Is this possible? And if so what is the best way to join the new timbers togehter to hold them sturdy. I got told to use some sort of metal piece that you screw onto the side of each of the beams..is this the right idea? Any suggestions? Thanks!!
