If you need additional space for your expanding family, like and additional bathroom, extra bedrooms, a larger living room, or even an additional story, your attic could be a useful option. Attics are usually built to only hold up the ceiling below and used purely for storage purposes, not for any living or working spaces. Ernie Colegrove Construction can help you transform you attic into something more useful than storing Christmas decorations and your kids' old toys. An attic build-out, or remodel, may involve adding extra support to the existing jousts so that they will be able to with stand a living load. Ceiling joists for dead loads only need to carry 10 pounds per square foot, as opposed to the 40 pounds per square foot or greater that live-load joists must carry. Our experienced team can custom-design all the addition supports and room layouts that will make your attic remodel perfect for your extra space needs. If you don’t have enough room and need some more living space, contact Ernie Colegrove Construction today and get some more elbow room.
