floor joists

floor joists

Horizontal boards laid on edge and resting on the beams that provide the main support for the floor. The subflooring is nailed to the joists, and then the flooring is installed. It is increasing common to use engineered floor joists—wood and binding material rather than traditional lumber—in order to gain strength and stability.
