rough opening to an attic drop down stairs

In reply to install new attic drop down stairs by E Herman on May 4th, 2000 09:42 PM [Go to top of thread]

I am sure I need to install a double header on the width to the rough opening but I am not sure it is necessary to install a double 2 x 8 along the length to the rough opening. The rough opening is 25 1/2 x 54" The 25 1/2 opening is perpendicular to the direction of the floor joists on the ones I am cutting out on the uppen level to where the stair will store.

Hope I am clear?
