I couldn’t figure out a way to install 2×4 ledgers on my wall. I wonder if someone could point me to the right direction.
The laundry space is 31″ W x 36″ D. I could attach 2x4s as ledgers, make notches for 3 steel metal support, and lay subfloor grade plywood on top. My dryer is 88lb. I hope this design would be strong enough to support it.
The other issue is that my wall has metal studs. In the past, I used lag screws to attach heavy-duty brackets to the wall of wood studs. What to do with metal studs in this case? I saw plastic anchors are used in some YouTube videos, would they quickly get worn out due to the dryer vibration?
If this platform idea doesn’t fly, I have to come up with my own design of metal stacking kit which I have no idea right now. Platform vs metal stacking kit, which is more appropriate for my project?
