we just had some attic space converted to living space (about 400 sq. ft.), including adding stairs to get to it, and we had 2x12"s sister beside the exising 2x6 joist. I would highly recommend having 2z12's (#2 grade, it is straighter pine) to handle the weight of furniture,etc. and for piece of mind. deck it with tongue and groove plywood too.. hope this helps best of luck to you
