    So my architect has stipulated 3 no joists under bath and stud walls. Does this terminology mean a minimum of 3 or 3 bolted together?

    It's normally two joists, and these can just be nailed together.

    I get the bath needing extra support but what does he mean in regard to the stud walls ? Will this be for the stud walls that run the same direction as the joists otherwise it would mean doubling up almost everywhere?

    Baths don't need extra support

    Well I guess his theory is that a Bath needs extra support?
