What country are you in? There is no rule in the UK that says all joists must run same direction.

+1 to what Woodsmith said... You can't attach the ends of a load of east/west joists to a single north/south joist as it won't be strong enough. Needs a supporting wall under, or a steel beam or another solution.

You haven't given me much detail but you can't attach 14' joists to a joist, it wouldn't have anything like enough strength to hold the weight.

I am building a home inside of a steel building. My ceiling joists for bath, laundry and bedroom go north and south. I an needing to know can I run the living kitchen joists east and west and attach them to the bedroom joists on one end? The span is 14'
