Changes My Friend Are Blowing In The Wind

Exciting things are happening at my little white house. In the front bedroom room, the floor had a bad spot that was sunken a good six inches. We thought that the floor joists were running in the short direction across the room and that one joist has slipped off of the sill plate. After our carpenter, Gary, tore into the floor, we discovered that the joists were running the long direction along the room and that SIX different joists were snapped in the same place.

Gary (see below) shored them up. He attached treated 2" x 8"s to the broken joists and then put treated 4" x 4" posts running perpendicular under the ends of the joists. The 4" x 4"s rest on concrete blocks. This new floor is not going anywhere. The floor was then covered plywood. I'll put pictures of that up soon.
