TJI Floor Joists

Hi all
I'm designing 20' x 30' garage with a second floor that spans the 20' but is only half the length of the 30'.I want to leave the option open of adding more floor in the future if I need to.I designed it so the 14" TGI's spanning the 20' are attached to the walls using joist hangers.This will allow me to add more joists later.My question is.Is this method acceptable(hanging floor joists on hangers)?Should the joists be sitting on top of the wall caplates instead?(in my case I can't do that).Is there any way I can post a .GIf(picture) file along with my question?Thanks very much.
