Removing rotten bathroom subfloor


Hey dude, you've had a leak for many many years.

Well, yes the subfloor should be ok as long as you add blocking under the cuts in the subfloor so both pieces are supported.

BUT, how about the joists. I will bet your present joists' framing is not sturdi enough for slate tiles. Ceramic tile or porcelain probably, natural stone? Probably not. Please tell us the type and size of the joists. Species and grade if possible. Spacing, and span from face-to-face of the two supports.

Removing rotten bathroom subfloor


It looks to me like the previous owner did a quick refloor and toilet in the bathroom prior to selling to us. The leak that caused this was from a broken flange as a result of a crooked toilet. The flange was also below the level of the wood floor. I only caught this because the toilet broke. So all the seepage seems to have gone between the subfloor and the hardwood I removed. I am going to open it up right now and we will see the condition of the joists.
The joists I can see in my ductwork on the same level are 2 x 8 of what looks to be spruce. But i won't know the spacing till I open up the floor

Also the house is 22 feet deep and the joists sit on a load bearing wall
In the middle... I think

Ok so here's a pic and it looks like the 2 x8 are 12 spacing. Good thing I do drywall because as you can see I need a ceiling. Looks like the leak was contained to right at the flange.
