I have a two-story house with a two-car garage under two bedrooms. The two bedrooms have a non-load bearing wall between them and the garage has a 6x10 beam underneath with a supporting post.
I want to take out the post, by bracing or sandwiching the existing beam with LVLs on either side using through-bolts and end posts. The span is including supporting end-posts 247".
how many LVLs do I need and what height of LVLS? Can I use one 1.75" x 11.75" on either side or do I need more?
