I have a 15' span where there is currently a load bearing

Customer Question

I have a 15' span where there is currently a load bearing wall. I want to remove the wall and replace it with a LAM beam. It is in a single story 'ranch style' house. The wall is between the living room and the kitchen directly over the iron I beam support that runs the length of the house.
What is the size (requirements) for the LAM beam i need?
