Well, we'll feel better about the joist deflection now.

Also, just found some info indicating my subfloor is not 3/4 inch plywood, but either 23/32 inch OSB or 1 1/4 inch 1.3E Timberstrand LSL. These are listed as accessories on my floor plan. Don't know which goes where. Does this make any difference?
Yep, that could make a difference, but only if we know qual es qual. The OSB option is still just a 3/4 inch subfloor. The LSL would be substantially better. You'd still hafta contact the manufacturer to determine the deflection, though. But first you need to find out what's actually on the floor, eh?

And then, even if the deflection is better than 1/720, there's gonna be at least one guy jump in here and say it don't matter on acoounta you still gotta have double-layer subfloor for that stone. But that will be a fun argument.

My opinion; worth price charged.
