Actually, I'm not sure that's the case, Christopher. :)

If by cement you actually mean concrete, Phillip, I see a couple downsides. First, bit of a Pita to form up properly as compared to other methods. Second, likely to have some cracking unless you're...

Nick, I'm not understanding how you've dropped your subfloor two inches, as indicated on your photo, simply by removing a section and lowering that section to the level of the joist tops. What am I...

Your joist deflection has nothing at all to do with the rigidity of your subfloor, Cliff. Two separate and distinct issues. The added half-inch subfloor is to reduce the between-joist deflection...

I'd buy Custom's White Versabond at Homer's for fifteen bucks and use it for the entire project. See my warranty information below.
