I recently installed a subfloor in the attic with temporary knee-walls to gain storage space and make the house easier to "grow up". The roof is a dark grey 3-tab shingle and there is a ridgevent installed with vents in the sofits. (The knee walls do not block the air flow.)
We are starting to put up some things in the attic for storage, which also clears space for a new room in the basement. We are at a quandry with a plastic box or two of paperback books and Christmas Ornamints that are settled in shredded paper. Can paper items be stored in the attic considering the summer heat? Does anyone here store books in the attic? Any problems?
There are pictures of the attic space here. (http://www.rhodeswoodsmith.com/House%20Project.htm) It's not pretty, but it works!
Thank you in advance.
