I am getting ready to put down a subfloor in my attic and I have ran into a problem. There is a group of wires running across the middle 1/3 of two joists. I know its agaisnt code to notch in this area and was wondering if anybody had any suggestions. There are probably 8 wires including the 220 for the heat exchange. The joists are 2x12s, 16" OC, 20' span. Any help is appreciated.
If you cannot use the strips idea then but a junction box at each end and drill through the joists to reconnect. This is a much harder task then adding the strips. Which will also stabilize the floor a little.
