I was up marking the pine floorboards for removal (plumber insists he needs them gone for plumbing access) and I noted that at least two of the joist (including one which is running the full span with no wall underneath are actually 3" x 8", which I find a bit unusual to be mixed with 2x8s with seemingly no rhyme or reason.

I also discovered that the joist running along the north wall is mostly under the wall itself, and that wall has some pretty big vertical timbers behind the lath that rest on top of the floor, so I'll have to use a cutting tool to cut them off flush at the north wall and then scab over from that joist to give my plywood something to sit on. Otherwise I'd be building a trampoline!

Will have some photos tomorrow once I am able to cut the floorboards and pull them up.
