Weymouth council, made us glue/screw 2nd joists to originals, supported at walls with joist hangers. Kidderminster, wanted new joists laid opposite way, again joist hangers. Southampton council wanted thicker joists, and so in went on. john

Which ever way the extra joists go Id have thought they must be supported each end by hangers. Its not so much the layout weight but all the odds and sods that end up on the floor and that includes the person playing trains, not that you are an odds and sods Tinker.

A few years back the guy next door identical property invited me to look at his loft after i mentioned flooring mine, the professional builder he had do the work simply laid the chipboard straight on top of the ceiling joists, so what every way a loft is converted to a floored loft there will be wise people saying that's not the way to do it...get advice if your not sure from a professional and just hope there on top of there job.....
