I ran across this today. It’s floor joists that are approximately 8 feet long made from 2 floor joists approximately 4 1/2 feet long. Where the two pieces of floor joist meet they aren’t nailed together or have one or two nails! The joists are supporting a bathroom tub.
My question is can floor joists be spliced or sistered properly? If so, how might it be done? All I can find in my code book is “floor joists can’t be spliced”.
