Thanks all, you have been most helpful. I will definitely be using some extra steel to connect the beams to the joists. This configuration will allow more room to move things under the beam/s. I will be storing materials like blocks of EPS foam up there, as well as keeping some of my stationary metal fabrication tools up there like a 50'' slip roll, 48'' box brake etc.

I'm planning to build an upper floor/mezzanine in my workshop. It will have 2x10x13 joists supported at one end by a stud wall and at the other by LVL beams. The beams will be 5.25''x9.5'' x 13' long. My question is, can the beams be connected via joist hangers or do I need to rest the ends of the joists on the beam? The reason being, joist hangers would give me more head room. But would the joist hanger design tend to pull loose from the load? Please see the attachment. Thanks!

We got a new Mini Aussie Shepherd, hoping we could train it to work sheep. Seemed super sweet, but when we worked sheep the dang thing kept going for their THROATS. The last straw was when it nipped my 5yo grand daughter on the face. It was just a scratch but I immediately had it put down. My grand daughter is an animal lover and was not mistreating the dog in any way. It just had a strong prey drive I guess.
