Since our GC didn’t dig the basement deep enough we have had to go with an alternative for our joist system/floor system to get us closer to the originally planned ceiling height throughout the basement. Being such there is a lot of nice joist material sitting on our property which we’ve been told will be trashed. I hate that, seems like such a waste. So, I asked our GC, Architect and Structural Engineer to see if they can find a way to utilize that material somewhere. I’m hoping that they’ll find a way to use them, seems as if it would be a win – win for everyone. We’ll see.
