In reply to Adding bathroom to second story? by Lana on February 15th, 2002 08:03 AM [Go to top of thread]

Are they actually 4X6?? That would be pretty strong, but the main concern is how far they are spanning without support from below. My old house has actual 3"X8" Oak joists spanning 21' in one section. They have a small amount of bounce if I jump up and down, but they are pretty secure. I'm putting the bathroom/tub close to an outside wall though as the joists are going to be stonger there.
