    Just to clarify remove window and in its place add 4 vertical members: one under each joist and
    4 under the edge of the above window? I wasn't sure what you meant by "two 2x4 blocks in the
    floor space...

    I am open to removing it all together. Could I just pull the window and and frame it in with
    dimension lumber? Maybe all treated 2x8? Since the block is 8" this is the biggest I could fit
    at least as ...

    Neal, I would definitely prefer an easier solution (who wouldn't), however I understand what
    you are saying and why you suggested it. Its definitely above my pay grade and comfort level.
    Also you are ...

    Yes its currently a single. Its on my todo list to double it up. Galvanized hangers and

    Neal, thanks for the info. I actually install joist hangers on the deck joists this summer.
    There were just end nailed, not even toe nailed. I wish I knew what I know now back then. If I
    ever buy anot...

    I think I will stick a screw jack under those 2 joists and snug them up for now. Not sure how
    to proceed a this point. I could even take the window out entirely but the blocks beneath the
    window would...

    The window upstairs is very large ~8' wide and ~5-6' tall. The last 1' or so of the window is
    above this basement window. There is no floor above that window but the ceiling joists ie roof
    trusses do ...

    Really; 4x4 header? waist of time!What would you propose? I am open to suggestions.Also I just
    noticed in your previous post you asked about a window above this window. There is a window

    The present setup doesn't cause any noticeable issues. It has deflected slightly but its only
    noticeable if you put a straight end on it. I am more concerned for the future and since I was
    tackling so...

    Appreciate the feedback, and I am aware "everything" is wrong. Really just looking for
    suggestions on what I can do to fix it. I thought about pulling the window and installing
    something smaller with ...
