If you're not installing radiant heat over a slab, can you, perhaps, adequately reinforce support in the basement/crawlspace and maybe securely fasten 2x4s to the floor joists and lay 3/4" plywood, as a base and support, over the top of which you can inbed the copper heating pipes in cement/concrete to a finish floor level??
