Someone had thrown down 200mm of rockwool ontop on the old 100mm which was on top of the other old 100mm anyway i need space for camping stuff ect so to board it out planned to put joists running opposite to raise the level above rockwool and put some boards on top. they are 2400mm in length but are only resting on two joists the rest of them are all too low can i get away with packing it out or will two joist support all that weight? any better ideas?
Also look at the shoddy electrics I was deliberately not using a knife to cut rock wool because i had seen cables going over joists but then found bare wires :!:

as you can see there's a good couple of inches gap!
