I am doing some renovations in my basement and noticed that the metal columns aren't centered on one main beam but centered on the gap between two beams. You can see it in the picture below (with the wood block above it splitting in the middle I might add)
Shouldn't the metal column be centered on one main beam instead of spanning two? Or is there a reason why it would be spanning two beams? It is a modular home, if that makes a difference.
This other photo is a picture farther down, just showing that the gap spans the entire length of the house. The other beam is centered on it as well.
The house was built in 2004. I'm wondering if they did something "unique" here that I should be concerned about.
