I need to put a push up attic access panel in my laundry room to access the ceiling above my kitchen. The house is stick construction with 2X6 ceiling joist 16 in on center. I want the access to be two joist sections wide. Do I just cut the ceiling joist and box in the joist to make the opening? Do I need to use ceiling joist hangers on the cross prices or just nail them.. I am thinking double up the frame in order to support the weight of hubby when he goes in through the hole..any issues with this plan..I will add a plywood panel that drops down on trim prices around opening as well as add insulation to the attic side of the plywood.
