Hi chaps, sorry for just rocking up and asking for advice but I'm totally stuck on this one!

I was planning on installing a 1400x700 shower tray in the space shown in the pic but there's a bit of a curveball in there as it's just above the stairs. There's a beefy joist running all the way under the center line of the shower but on the left hand side of the joist in the pic, near the wall, the floorboards just overhang (you can just about see the plasterboard underneath sloping upwards for the stair entry below). They have some diagonals nailed in for some extra support I assume and something to nail the plasterboard to below.

My concern is that if somebody stands on the unsupported side of the joist, there may be a tiny amount of flex that may crack the base.

What do you think? :dunno:

Any good? Green area is tray footprint, red area is the boards that overhang the joist (blue line) above the stairs

I would fasten a new piece of joist to the existing or large timber batten to carry those floor boards That would then allow weight bearing and solve your problem.
