I want to replace a floor that I've just removed, instead of chiseling out the wall and slotting the joists in the holes I would prefer to fit a joist laterally along each side and then hang the new ones within this new frame.
I suppose I should chemical bolt the joists to the wall, my question is how frequently should I place the bolts and what diameter rod should I use?
The floor will be 4.10m x 9.8m and support a bedroom and bathroom (no bath)
The floor finish will probably be 22mm particle board with a resin or 'beton cire' and the ceiling, 10mm timber or 13mm plasterboard.
All suggestions most welcome!
