yes you are right, no trusses.... the 2x's run long ways from the garage to about the end of the hall right before the master bedroom then they go from the front of the house towards the back of the house...
now, when you say 'ceiling joists overlap' what will I be looking for exactly? does that mean I will see one on top of the other? bear with me... this is what happens to me when I stop doing something for a little while LOL
