The joists are actual 1.5" x 9", 16" OC, 10.5' span. L/719.

I was thinking of using 2x8s for sistering because 2x10s would have to be ripped down.

CX, i don't exactly follow what you think i should do here...

Dhagin's vote seems to be for cutting the overhang off, nailing the joists together well, and calling it a day...

If the deflection to one side of the joist is so miniscule, a couple hundredths of an inch, wouldn't that be the same on the other side of the beam for the same joist? That the uplift would be virtually nil too?

I can't wait to do my other bathroom...its clear what the answer is there...
