Welcome, James. :)

It's also unlikely that your joists are on 14" centers. More likely to be 16" on center. Check that, too.

Welcome back, Patrick. :)

At 25 years, I'd think there's a good chance that your drain's weep holes are plugged up. That could result in the top mud bed holding a good deal of water, which could...

You say your OSB is nailed on 16" centers. Is that along the joists, or is that perhaps your joist spacing?
