    There are 5 gaps between the joists without any noggins.
    So my intention put 2 noggins in between the joists at 900mm from each end.
    Beware the following pic is an eyesore..

    You might be easier just starting again and removing all the floor boards. I can't think you are going to get a solid floor even once your cut new boards in. Id just use a sheet of 18mm WBP plywood fixed straight onto the joists, then possible over ply with 12mm or the tiler may be happy to tile straight onto this

    looks like thats going to take a while to dry out properly all the way through, and id be inclined to do as Middleton suggested,
    the slow pond build thread

    Well where the rotten part is i have managed to get the affected boards out under the dividing false wall..

    I cut back to the nearest joist to the wall in the bedroom andhacked it away which buybsplitting the boards with a chisel was quite easier than expected...
    Plus a new toy helped..

    Ant - if you are going to use a dehumidifier to dry it out be careful as the industrial ones can dry things out too quickly and cause the natural moisture in things to be removed as well.

    Well so far so good.
    Thanks for the advice about replacing the FB with wb ply etc
    As i all ready had two sheets of 12mm ply cut in half to make them more manageable due to the lack of room for working i decided to do as follows to make it far easier.

    I ripped up all existing FB and replaced with new the best way tbh.

    I then plumbed the towel rad back in and ply boarded over the fbs..

    Ive salvaged some of the old FB from the ones i ripped up to replace those i had to remove that where in a bad state..
