Don't forget to support the supporting wall. If the floor underneath isn't strong enough to support the floor above, too, then you'll either need to beef it up or run support all the way down to solid ground.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
