Where joists hang off the beam we pack out the groove of the beam with ripped down lumber until it is clear of the flanges. This packing is then nailed together and through bolted (as you can see in this pic) this beam is now ready to have joist hangers nailed to it.
Connecting wood beams to steel beams is another thing entirely so I have posted a second pic....

But all is well and this is now happily joisted and floored and we will be standing bedroom walls by the end of next week.!
