Joist 34' o.c bouncy
Hi there I read alot of the excellent post on bouncy floors. Although did not find any to match my problem... I bought a cottage built in the 20s which I am converting to a fourseason home.
The floor joist are all 2x8 rough 34" o.c with spans if 12'
I was thinking of adding a 2x8 (1.5x7.5) joist in the middle which would equal approx 16" o.c and shimming th .5" missing with s piece of hard wood floor my question was with reading the posts using 1/8 metal strapping seems pretty efficient any guidance would be greatly appreciated
