And the joists were (mostly) hung by the fireplace with care.
With a lot of help from Thom and Justin, we hung most of the joists and put in about 75% of the stiffeners. I still have about 25 joists to hang, though... Once the wood dries out some, I will put in shims (where needed) and nail the joists in. (They're currently just sitting in the joist hangers...) (Note: I think I'll replace the stiffener on the lower left of the picture. I didn't see the bow in the joist when I measured for the stiffener and I didn't notice until I took this picture...)

2x12s on 16" centers. Overkill for all normal needs, but it allows for lots of insulation (cooling and heating will be rudimentary). Also, I can put solar on top,hang stuff like powered dust filters off the ceiling, and have no fear when snow piles up. The space over the old garage roof will be kept partially open as storage.

In addition to Positive Angle Nailing these hangers encapsulate the top flange of the I-joist, so no web stiffeners are required for standard installation.
