There are no sections and details showing all of that. How will the roof be supported on these beams? Will there be bearing walls? Posts and beams? I will need all these framing plans to accurately track load to the beams.
Also, I would like to limit it to one beam size per question or I can submit an additional service offer to design the entire beam system as well as look at the posts and footings needed for the beam supports.
Let me know how you prefer to proceed.
Sounds good. Will it support any ceramic tile?
Give me a few minutes to run some numbers
6000 pounds at 10' in from each end will result in deflection of about 1.15", or about L/370). I would not go more than that.
That assumes no other load on the beam.
correct. Equally distributed between the two points that are 10' from each end of the beam
Do you mind asking that as a separate question?
Hello. Do you have any other questions for me on this topic? If you could rate my answer, I would appreciate it.
