What size LVL beam do I need for an 8ft opening on the 1st floor of a 2 story home
JA: OK. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so we can help you best.
Customer: Thinking about using 2 2x 10 LVL beams to span a non load bearing wall opening
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Structural Engineer should know?
Customer: Floor joists are running parallel with the interior wall that is being opened up for a larger opening. The 8ft opening is replacing a 3ft opening
Is it in an interior or exterior wall?
