We're going to install a new linen closet off the hallway next to our recently(ish) remodeled bathroom. The wall in question is load bearing.
I know how to properly build out the King and Jack studs, and if this weren't load bearing I'd just put in cripple studs, but since this is load bearing I figure on installing sistered 2x? over the doorway resting on doubled up jack studs. The only question I have is - 2 by WHAT?
It's a 30" door if I recall correctly (it's reclaimed from another part of the house and I haven't measured it lately) so I'm thinking sistered 2x12's will be MORE than sufficient.
