Bad news...

Hmmm, I posted a response to the above "More
Inforamtion" a few days ago and it seems to have
disappeared, I wonder why?

Billy, the trusses on 20" centers make this floor
basicly unsuitable for a reliable tile installation
according to the TCA Handbook and ANSI 108-1992.
Even adding posts and a beam, while perhaps reducing
any flex due the span, will not make up for the fact
that the 16" oc requirement is exceeded by 25%. It
is not impossible that some combination of setting
materials will give accepetable service for some years,
but finding them may be the trick, and the prospect
of periodic replacement of tiles and or grout looms.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but facts are facts.
