Cheers buddy, I'll be working on it this weekend so will report back after bolting some more 4x2's together. A second opinion would be much welcomed.I live in Warwick if you would like to pm me. I can come have a look.
Ye, the strenght comes from the depth not the width. I can leave the existing frame "as is" then (the extra support for board joins isnt a bad thing plus it'll still be where foot traffic is).I agree. The thing with bolting them together is that you aren’t increasing the x4 part. They do need support underneath. You are doing the right thing.
Thats the plan! Max span will about around 1m then. Just need to decide on appropriate underlayment but I think Ditra would be OK to keep the height down to a minimum.If you've got 50 bricks you could support most of your beams shown in your orginal pictures ,this would hopefully stop any bounce what so ever
