Customer Question

I already removed a 10' long 2x4 wall in a ranch thinking that it was non load bearing. Looking at the rafters from underneath I beleive that I was wrong. Width of ranch is 24' built in 1956. The house has a basement and the removed wall runs parallel to center basement beam about 3' away. I am thinking that I can put in double 11 7/8 x 1 3/4 lvl supported with lolly post on each end and be OK. Sound right?
