Has anyone upgraded an attic floor framing to allow for a code compliant second floor addition? The attic is currently framed with 2x6 with spans that exceed a "normal" floor framing.
Has doubling up with 2x6's, or sistering in 2x8/2x10 been attempted by anyone? I am hoping to keep the 1st floor ceiling in tact and as much of the attic/second floor exterior walls in place.
What if I placed a T&G decking on the 2x6?
