I went out to the homestead yesterday and saw these huge manufactured boards. They are made like plywood, but are 26 feet long, 24 inches wide and 2 inches thick. ( I don’t even want to know what that cost )

They screwed and nailed the three of them together to form a beam to span the garage and attach the shorter floor joists.

They have put up a lot of floor joists, all on 12 inch centers. The great room is looking like an outdoor arbor used to block the sun.
