Attic Access Hatch Reframe

The existing access hatch wasn’t framed very well.  It was hard to tell if it was original, but the joist that was cut to make the hatch wasn’t supported very well back when they made it.  We wanted to lengthen the access hatch and since we were also doing work on the wall directly below for the bathtub alcove, Papa Pope and I decided to reframe it using new 2×10″ lumber and joist hangers.  Above is the finished product.
