If I got what you said correctly, your floor joists are on a 12" OC build-out? Also, your joists are (at least) 2x8s? If so, you should have nothing to worry about.

well. you do have to post the joist size and length. you are going to be asked that, again. just go in the basement and measure. they are probably 1 3/4" x 7 1/4" x ??

So you have 2x10 joists.

How far apart spacing between the joists?

they are a foot apart... i have no clue how long but i do have pictures.... the bathroom has a ton of posts.... i dont think deflection will be to bad since there are 4 posts for just this bathroom.... my stepdad thinks the previous owners screwed something up then hired someone to fix it

This is what's needed for us to determine your deflection';

Joist size--2x10?
Grade and type of wood--old house? Likely douglas fir?

Spacing---go measure that

And unsupported length---(distance from foundation to beam or post--)

Get that and one of us will check our charts and give you the deflection.
360 is minimum for tile 760 id minimum for natural stone

ok well... there is 12 inches between and the foundation wall is on the other side of the stairs pictured next to the metal post above (just a little over 3 feet)... the other foundation walls are 10-20 ft with other posts in as well... my measuring tape isnt that long.... as for the grade and type of wood, i have no idea what it is or how to find out. our country doesnt keep records of houses built and said even if they had the fire they had in the 70s would have destroyed them

How about a picture showing the ceiling of the whole basement?

Those joists are rough sawn and heavier than the joist of today---You may be okay---I fust wonder why so much extra support was added after the house was built.

well the bathroom was not original and there was probably not enough support there for anything because they used to just cover the area under the stairs up. Also there have been walls taken out (such as the one that seperates the foyer/stairs from the living room) and added (such as the closet in the foyer they had built). Honestly the newer layout works better than ones i have seen that are similar. We also have an uneeded servents stair case in the kitchen which is original to the house but unusable... we will be hiring people to take it out in the future. The basement is a brick foundation and one side was anchored in 06 because it started to crumble in. I am guessing that the added support in this area is due to all of these things since they are all within the same area.

Late to this thread but couldn't help noticing the galvanized metal straps holding up the copper water pipes (2nd pic above) - that's eventually going to cause galvanic reaction and corrosion. Change them for copper or plastic straps.

The 90 degree copper bend in the 4th pic completely covered in green needs to be repaired before it also corrodes further and bursts.

1st pic (more clearly seen in 3rd pic) shows the pvc pipe support missed the pipe completely - just hanging there.

Well... the money issues are not as bad and we have a birthday coming up in a couple weeks.... our goal is to completely have the bathroom finished by July 7th.... sooo we have this weekend and next weekend to get it done... cant this weekend so next weekend it is... will be calling the in laws for speed and probably stealing the toilet from the 2nd half bath upstairs.... granted i will be replacing the guts in it with the guts from the old toilet since they dont work properly... my to do list til then is to get the wall paper off.... thanks for all the support!!

Also I found out today that no one in our town will touch our basement.... i need a contractor willing to lift 2500 sqft and build me my basement without telling me im crazy and it costs more than my home is worth..... i dont care if its more than my home is probably worth in this town, its my home and i want it to feel like home... any comments or contacts for that would be much appreciated...
