I started installing floor joists to reinforce my floor and then I ran into a problem I'm not sure how to deal with. The concrete foundation has a step in it that I now have to figure out how to deal with. I've attached pictures to show how it looks.
Do I notch out the boards before using the joist hangers to fill the gap? (The dark grey/brown thing on the joist in the pic is a hanger)
or do I just butt the boards up to the foundation and use joist hangers?
Also, I'm nervous about nailing into my foundation....is there any other alternative?
