depending on how much of flange is gone you may be able to add bolt thru flat steel plate to each side of flange

are the flanges 3.5" wide? looks like you need to check for sag at that point with straight edge to see if it has moved, those are pretty beefy joists and you may be able to still do some laminating after talking to the joist manufacturer

Here is the view from the other side. Top flange is cut through with about 2-1/4" of the top of the webbing.

In the very lower left and bottom of photo you can see a framed wall. Trouble is I can stick a sheet of paper in-between the joist and the top about half way.

Well, it's beginning to look like the path of least resistance will be to use the old bedroom that was going to be the master closet and make it the master bathroom instead. Instead of trying to maneuver, relocate, the stack vent, tie in two bathrooms into it and trying to put 4" drain in a basement with HVAC ducts galore, just isn't easy.

Instead I can run the "soon to be" 1" hot and cold line over and build a new drain system to exit out foundation wall right into the septic line.

Removing the santee and replacing with a coupling is so much easier! All I will need to focus on is getting hall bathroom up to code. Will need to involve a roofer and a plumber to do the new soil stack vent. Yes, I will have the soil stack vent right behind the toilet!

I've started using this program to hopefully help with the layout of the master bath. Hopefully adding supply and drain pipes aren't harder than actually doing it in real life which would defeat the purpose.

Don't know why this happened or whether it will occur again. Shortened wire and put new tab connector on. Will check it in a couple of days. Delta rise is better but still isn't ROCKIN'...

This unit is on the long list to be replaced like the other one. Will keep going with the Band-Aids.

Merci.

So far I have these two views. The mirror is ceiling hung and is two sided so "in theory" I can shave in the shower...

I have found a device that will allow for adequate repair of the damaged joist. They also sell a product which will allow me to cut a 3" hole in the webbing which opens the door back up to the original design with the Schluter-Kerdi 48" x 48" shower kit, a bench and curb surround. The jury is still out on whether the new toilet location can be done due to it's location almost directly above main drain line.

More views of Plan A

The toilet pictured at right is the one with a hard to plumb location. Overall, to achieve this the ceiling will need to be lowered enough to hide the needed vents. One major advantage to this design vs. the other one listed a couple of posts above is the water heaters and other water devices are immediately below this room.

I shortened the bench, there was no place to step in. Code requires that the door swings out but this works better for entering.

Will hopefully have a verdict on drains soon.
