I'd like to lower the shower area by 2" to enable me to go curb less on the enclosure. If I remove the top plate of the floor truss and sandwich the remainder between 5/8" plywood staggered will I be ok structurally?
in some instances you can use conventioinal lumber that matches the dimension of the engineered joists.. you can notch them where the shower will be but they have to be doubled to maintain their strength.. check with an engineer first though
