build out bonus room
1 Attachment(s)
I have an area over my garage that I believe can be used for additional living space. Trusses have provisions for knee walls and are 2x8, 24 o.c. Question 1: The floor joist are 2x8 24"o.c. and span 11'9". The total garage span is 23'. There is a splice that uses a mending plate to hold both joists together. Are the joists structurally sound for 3/4 plywood with laminate flooring? Would I need to use blocking to give flooring more support? Room will be used for crafts - no real heavy objects. Ques 2: what is best way to insulate? thanks
