Blocking.

The 2x4 on the flat sounds like a pretty easy approach, but I don't have a lot of confidence in my ability to attach the 2x4s and get good contact/support with the floor.

I like the idea of some OSB or plywood attached to the top/bottom of the joist, then a 2x6 attached with joist hangers. Anyone have an idea about what "thick enough" would be for the plywood/OSB in this application? And is one or the other (ply vs OSB) preferred?

The joists are MacMillan TJI/Pro 150 11-7/8, if that matters.
