Considering an attic workshop? First, make sure your attic is tall enough. Will you be able to stand, or haul in tall wooden boards? Next, consider your access route: Steep stairs are risky when you're moving heavy materials, tools, and finished projects. And don't forget to test your attic floors to be sure they're strong enough to support your new workshop, and ensure proper ventilation by installing an exhaust fan.
