My wife has started to accumulate quite a few seasonal decorations which are stored above the garage. i am starting to wonder how much weight can actually go up there. 16" OC 2x6s with a span of 22'. The garage was built in '59. There is a 1x4 vertical tie in to the roof at the peak right down to the center of each rafter.
Thoughts? I cannot imagine a 2x6 at that span can take much weight, but then again the tie in "cuts that in half".
