however, you might have to or want to double up the 2x8s that will be the new support for those joist ends to better support them when the rough opening for the pull down stair is framed in. The long sides of the rough opening will need to tie into the next joist on each end. Let see what some of the other experience folks on the board think. good luck. LJ
