I'm looking to rehab an older house that has a load bearing

Customer Question

I'm looking to rehab an older house that has a load bearing wall down the middle of it. The house is 24' wide. I'd like to remove 17' of wall and install a glulam. The house is in Arizona, built 1959, 4/12 pitch and has asphalt shingles and an air handler in the attic.
Was wondering what size glulam I would need without overdoing it?

Can I get back with you in the morning when I get into my office?

Sorry for the delay, I did not realize I had not reponded.

Can you take a look at the following link and answer the questions at the bottom of the sheet? Your answers will allow me to accurately model the loading and size your beam. Thanks
