I decided that I could not raise each end because that will make the finished floor much too high. So I spent a day laying out my strings and shaving down the crown with an electric planner and belt sander. Once finished I laid my 6' level across in multiple spots - it is really, really close to flat. But not level. I now also need to sister the joists.

Which brings me to an actual question: 2X material or 3/4" ply for the sisters? Seems the 3/4" ply would be the way to go; flat, straight, strong, and easier to work with.

Many thanks....
