What do you have against joist hangers? I suppose that you could bolt a big angle iron to the wall and install cripples to keep the joists upright but that sounds like an awful lot of work.

Curious here???? You are doing nothing but making a ledger which requires more work, especially with iron.

Why not joist hangers??? Just wondering??
