Can I relocate a roof support?


below is a picture of some roof supports attached to the top plate of a 6" wall between the house and attached garage. I am expanding the mud room and enclosing the space behind it which is part of the garage. can I just relocate the support to a nearby structure or do I need to install a header. the support post fall in the middle of the wall I wish to remove.

how many are you moving, if it's only 1-2 wouldn't be a problem, there's plenty of them

Re: Can I relocate a roof support?


the ceiling joists run parallel to this wall so the only thing it is supporting is the roof supports. I would also like to make it a blind header so the ceiling is level all the way across.
