J Tabordiy : Interesting use of materials, Actually historically significant in that a certain type of landowner in the say 1300s would build his 1st floor out of Stone,
this would be a grain and tools area, and likely the kitchen area, with a wattle and daub exterior chimney to be pulled down in case of a chimney or Kitchen fire

I think your ridge line needs a weight carrier, but you may be fine over such a short distance -

I would suggest a different joint there, more like half-lapped, so the stresses on the ends of the overhanging beams and the ends of the cross beams are equal.
