If you have the space to spare, a wood shop loft may be just the thing for you. It can add twice the area in the same area. And is great for storage of extra tools or materials. A few tips on building a loft:
- Be sure to use heavy supports to handle the load.
- Safety first!
- Use a handle along the open side and hand railing on the steps or ladder.
- To add to the usefulness of the loft, a light in the loft would greatly help.
