What is the joist length on each side of the beam? Will it support one floor and the attic? Will it also support the roof?
That description doesn't make sense to me. Can you post a sketch?
The beam will support joists only? Correct?
Not a perpendicular beam?
It supports the attic only? No floor and no roof?
Perpendicular means at 90 degrees.
What is perpendicular to the load bearing wall?
You want to remove a wall that is not load bearing?
That's why I need a sketch. I don't know what load it's carrying if it's parallel to the joists.
I'm going to opt out for you. I'm sorry, but the sketch is not helping and I don't think my message is getting through. How do you call a wall non load bearing if it's carrying load?
