Patching large hole left after removing basement stairs.

    I have demolished an old stairwell into my basement. I am taking out all of the floor boards in this room and replacing them with ply, rather than trying to sub in something into the space.

    I want to sister in some joists across the space - they go longways across the space.

    At the wall end, it has been tiled with cement over the brick behind the tile. I was thinking of attaching a supporting beam with some sleeve anchors into the tile/cement/brick, and then placing a few vertical support beams underneath to the basement floor (attached with brackets).

    I would run joists the other way so I wouldn't have to attach to that wall. All your doing is framing and that would just be holding the ply your replacing with. I've seen this done before.

    Wouldn't that possibly put too much pressure on the joists on either side?

    That's something I would have to get a permit for. I'm not a GC, but I think if you were to sell, there might be an issue.
