Hi Greg,
well 12" seems a hell of a lot. so you can do three things.
1) you can fit new joists along side the old
( you call it sistering in your part of the world)
at the hight of the "bottom of the old joists, that way you will
loose the sagging, but you will have a lower ceiling.
2) you can fit new joists along side the old. "but fix at the ends"
then cut out the old joists say 12" from the wall both sides,
3) Replace all the joists with new ones,
myself... I would replace the joists, ( no more sagging )
Best of luck on what ever you choose.... John 2000
