In order for me to make the changes to my bathroom (moving toilet and vanity along the joist) I need to remove my subfloor. I cut a test hole in the floor and noticed that my toilet drain runs parallel to the wall directly under it fro about 8 ft to the stack. The wall appears to be supported only by the subfloor. There is a 36 inch gap between the joist in the bathroom and the joist in the adjoing bedroom. There are some vertical 2x2s that appear to be supporting the subfloor. How will I support the new subfloor along the bathroom wall? Will removing the subfloor compromise the structure of the bathroom wall?
