I'm in the middle of a riser build and everyone talks about how heavy they are, it's now more realistic. My question: this is on the second floor above a 2 car garage. The riser is in the corner of the room and house. It is 6.5x12x18. My build is pretty typical as I've used this forum for tips. Those with house construction knowledge do I have anything to worry about? I'll have 3 chairs and people at the most.

I wasn't worried about injury from the collapse but the result of it going down on my wife's car. Resulting in death for me. smile.gif

Btw thanks Big for your contributions on this forum. I feel as if I know you reading through all your excellent posts researching my build.

I think the heaviness is in regards to sand-filled ones. You're not doing that, right?

Just a note that is a pretty short riser, have you done the math?
