In my house, above this joist, there's a floor to ceiling bookcase and the joist next to it was completely cut to make room for a heat supply register. A few brick scraps precariously cantilevered, notched up 2x8... sounds adequate! Wonder who thought this was a good idea.

Good thing they didn't put multiple wires up there. No telling how much of the joist would be left or how many brick cantilevered.
