Block and tackle

In reply to storage loft access by Joe Amiguet on July 1st, 2002 06:50 AM [Go to top of thread]

The garage at my Mom and Dads had a loft with a double door at one gable end.Attached to the ceiling was a 3 or 4 inch I beam that ran the length of the loft and extended 4 feet beyond the doors.The pulley blocks rode the I beam on wheels.Pull something up on the outside,roll it into the loft.Your situation may not be same but maybe this will give you some ideas.If you do something like this,make sure the kids,if any,don't use it to lift each other up and down.My little Brother.....well I couldn't hold on any longer and he got busted up pretty bad.We laugh about it now,but he(and I)were lucky that day.Luck
