Have a Ca ranch style house with 3 car garage. Want to finish off the garage ceiling and include pull down ladder to allow for better use of this space.
Currently have plywood over beams in garage. How far apart can the support beams be? Plan this to be storage space. Is there a better location to put the stairs? Any other tips/ things I should consider please let me know. thanks
