Hello are you there
Expert:  StructuralEng replied 1 year ago.

I am a professional engineer. It was possible you were asking about putting a basement under an existing garage.

Expert:  StructuralEng replied 1 year ago.

I can size the beams for you (size and spacing). If you want a full design to include the slab, thickness, rebar, and sketches, I can offer that as a premium service
