Making an Attic Access Door

Jun 17th

The attic access door is often the name used to describe a type of push-up panel, doors to the knees or any other input to the attic space. The most common of them is the door to push up, which is no more than a drywall or plywood fastened by simple adjustments to wood. These panels are often found in hallways, closets, garage spaces, or areas of the house where the panel will not be very noticeable, and yet provide easy access for storage or maintenance. Add a panel and to your attic access door is usually not difficult.

  1. Select a roof or ceiling hallway closet with good space, and you have to use a ladder to access your attic access door. Passes through a metal detector to locate your ceiling joists. Mark each location with a pencil. Your joists should be 16 to 24 inches (40.64 to 60.96 cm) in the center. This is wide enough for a panel.
  2. Measure and draw the width between beams and 28 to 30 inches (71.12 to 76.20 cm) to the length of the panel. Use a drywall saw and first cut along your lines of beams. You must feel the mountains touch the face of the beam to cut.
