I want to remove 110 inches of wall. The wall now is just the same as a framed wall. Two 2x4s on the header and footer then studs 16 inch centers. Can I remove the 6 studs and install a engineered beam supported with a floor jack on each ends. It is a cement floor.
it is usually possible to remove a load bearing wall and replace it with an appropriately sized header supported on properly designed posts. This is pretty routine work, however it does require a design by a qualified individual (may require a professional engineer, check with your local code enforcement official), temporary support of the ceiling during the operation, and proper installation of the elements. You will most likely need a building permit, so you should start the process by discussing the rules and regulations that apply to your particular location with the code official.
