For a 26ft outside load bearing wall i am opening up with 2 26ft lvl, Will I need a support column in the middle or can i just do the support columns on both ends. I have enlarged my kitchen. Now I need to remove the existing outside load bearing wall for the open floor plan.
Removing an outside load bearing wall is serious, it will be worth the few hundred dollars to ask the opinion of a structural engineer. They will be able to calculate the loads and give you a stamp of approval. I take it you're doing this without pulling any permits.
