I'm renovating a 2nd floor bathroom and I made the mistake of cutting out the subfloor flush with the wall shared by the doorway. The problem is that this wall sits between 2 joists so my new and existing subfloor butts up against one another in unsupported space.
My original solution was to install blocking but the issue is that there is round duct work that runs directly under the wall between the joists. I've considered adding another joist but there is only 5 inches of space between the joist and the duct work. What is the best solution given this situation?
