You guys are slowly building my shed one day at a time, and I am very appreciative of it!! I didn't realize I would have so many questions otherwise I would have just made one big thread for the entire build.
On to today's problem. My roof trusses are roughly this setup. The peak is about 11'-6" and the bottom chord is a 2x6.
I am only insulating the garage ceiling (attic floor), and I think I need roughly 15" of blown insulation, but I still need to verify this. I plan to use the taller part of the attic for some light storage for items that are needed once every 3 years. Now my question is, how do I get 15" of insulation in here and still have a usable surface? Currently the best solution I have in mind is 2x10s perpendicular and on top of the bottom cords (similar to the below image). This just seems really excessive. Am I overlooking a simpler solution?
Otherwise there are systems like this. They don't give much info but I think they would be much lighter than a 2x10
