how much bearing ?

yeah, i am going to sister. and a bunch of nails.

i am also thinking that i will jack up the old joist just a little, then nail.

i want this floor to be pretty solid. $6000 in cabinets and $2000+ in granite. i don't want any problems. but i am still not planing on any tile in there. though idk what yet.

made in USA

how much bearing ?

ok. i happen to have an extra 2x8. so i put it in place. not much of an issue, other than the normal fiddling around that needs to be done on everything in an old house.
it made a big difference on the "feel" of the floor. so i may even sister a bunch to make it possible to do tile. because tile is my prefered in the kitchen.
