Hi all, am after some advice. I have recently completed a project of coverting an old box room into my new kitchen.

I notched some of the 8" inch joist in my 1s floor flat by 1.5" deep to allow for a 1.5" drainage. This was to allow the drainage to go under floor.

I notched 7 joisted but braced them with large steel plates - 60cm wide x 1.2cm thick x 10cm high. 8 screws per plate.

Would you say that the joists will be ok?

Thanks Pedro
