Thanks for the info Peter. The house was built in 1971. And yes, this is the upper level of a split.

Once I pull out the existing kitchen floor, I shouldn't have any problem figuring out the joist spacing. Interesting idea of checking the joist spacing from the ceiling below.

One concern I have is that the kitchen will have a peninsula with seating and the back of the seats face the dining room. I wanted to make sure the dining room and kitchen floor were the same height so if you slide the chair back while you are getting up from the peninsula, you can't slide it too far and have it fall over if the back legs of the chair cross over from the kitchen floor to the dining room floor. I believe the peninsula is far enough in from the dining rooms so this shouldn't be a problem, but having the two floors the same height would be ideal.
