help me framing my floor
Dependant on the actual design of your structure: When you do a standard "cut-out" like what you are proposing, you need to double the joists (which you show) and also double the joists that make up you new opening's ends (which you also show). Use double joist hangers on every location, and single joist hangers on any joists along the center. Essentially.... That is the basic concept.
