I am renovating my bathroom in second floor with new jacuzy, and tile shower and floors. My questions: 1. How much wait can the frame support under normal circunstances? 2. Do I need to strengthen frame or board? 3. How to avoid squeaking in future?
Thanks in advance

I frame second floors for 50#/sq ft live load. Some places allow 40 or even 30. Calc your area and multiply it by 30. That will give the rough amt of weight you can add to what is there now. Include tile, tub, water, people in your load projections
