level top of 8x8 to set floor joist on

Posted by John H on April 21st, 2003 07:13 PM

I want to take out my existing floor joist system and replace it with open web joist(20 ft.span) across the with of my house on top of the 8x8beams running the length of my house. My problem is they don't run level. there is a 3 inch difference difference in hieght which the new joist would sit on,hence a sloping floor. I was thinking of running 2x6or8's along the face if the 8x8(other side is exterior wall) and filling with a liquid leveler then nailing down joists to level surface. Ken you please give me some advice on what I am looking for in a leveler and any helpful hints or better way to level. Also do you think it will push out my exterior wall ......thank you very mudh
