Barn Flooring Questions

Hi, I'm hoping I can get some input regarding the floor in my barn restoration project. The barn itself is a 1880s 28'x28' bank barn (has usable basement accessible from back side). The floor joists are rough sawn southern yellow pine 3x8s roughly 14" on center. My plan is to lay down a 3/4 advantech sub floor followed by southern yellow pine T&G 2x6s. I already have the 2x6s and just found a good deal on the advantech.

The barn will be used mostly as a workshop and needs to support tools, lawn equipment, engines, etc. Assuming that the floor joists are well supported, I'd like to hear some thoughts on my plan.

I'm not sure if this is the best place to post...let me know if it belongs somewhere else.

This might do better in 'construction' but most regulars just hit 'todays posts' so it will be seen by most members.

What happened to the old original plank floor? Is it floor just open joists right now?

3/4" advantec and 2x6 t&g should give you a great floor---
