I would like to put a doorway into a loadbearing wall by removing 1 stud. My measurements between what would be the remaining studs is 30.5 inches. I was hoping to do a header using header hangers into what would be king studs (the remaining studs), to avoid taking up door width with jack studs. From the chart in the link below, it indicates that would be acceptable as a replacement of two jack studs (one on each side). However, as I read the chart, I am supposed to have two jacks on each side.
This doorway would be on the first floor of a two story house which I believe is 36' feet wide.
I just want to confirm that I cannot use header hangers instead of jacks before I consider whether a much smaller door is worth it or if I ditch the idea entirely.
