No room for a hanger?


I'm need to stiffen up my kitchen floor for preparation of slate tiles. Part of this project includes new joists around a chimney. The chimney projects out into the kitchen area. In this case, Ive got a double Microlam joist running 11' 6" on each side and a double LVL header between those spanning the width of the chimney which is just short of 5'.
How do I attach the header since one side of it will be right up against the chimney?
TIA

I guess my only option is 3/8x6" lag screws and maybe a framing anchor on one edge.
I can't think of any other way to give the header the support it needs.

The header should not be laid right against the chimney anyway, so you should be able to space it out far enough for the flange of a joist hanger . You can let the sub floor overhang the header by a bit to get it closer to the chimney.
