One of my uncles has a very bouncy living room floor.  He planned to sister
the existing 2x8's.  I told him the floor would be cheaper and stiffer if he
glued and nailed 2x4 to the underside of each joist, forming an upside-down
"T".  He came right out and told me he didn't think that was true.  LOL
