tile in a new construction

Hello tile guru's,

My question is a simple one. I am getting a new home built and I want to install tile over the entire greatroom floor. I have a finished basement under the floor and it will be insulated. my room dimensions are about 17x20 and I have 11 7/8" I-joist Boise slient flooring system with 3/4" inch OSB. What should my floor profile be to install 16" tile squares. Joist->3/4" osb->?->?->Tile .

Or should I just go with plain old carpet(by the way the room is 2 stories tall.

Thank-you

Welcome, asahnwyatt. I ain't tryin' to spell that again. Tell us your name.

You also gotta tell:

Spacing between those joists.

Do they span the 17, or the 20 foot direction? And no "about", please, tell us the actual unsupported span.

Your joists are good for ceramic tile (including procelain). You need an underlayment between the OSB and the tile. 1/4" backerboard (anybody's) will do. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on installation. Don't forget the thinset under the backerboard.
