my supplier said 3 1/2 x 12 would handle the load with 50L/10D load spec. 3" bearing both sides. You could call you local supplier to verify and price a 3.5x12 BC glulam

Installing header for kitchen pass through


Is there anything else I could use other than a glulam to make this shorter than the 12"? just cause I have to have the bar height at 48"cause I have a stove on the other side. So it really only leave me with a 2ft 2 inch opening. not a big issue but would like to maximize the opening

Your best bet is to go thru an architect/engineer & have them design support from above
For 26" I wouldn't even open it up

It's obviouly more/expense but you could put the beam in the ceiling rather than benieth it, hang the joists with hangers and your ridge supports on top of the beam.

You don't need a glu-lam. You are only carrying ceiling joists. I need a picture of the supports in the attic to see if they are bearing or just put in to hold the ridge board during construction. The snow load does not figure in here, unless you have a broken rafter or two - hence the support picture. To put a beam in the attic would not be difficult, at least from here. What is your rafter span- or- how wide is the house? 28 or 30"? Is the wall centered in that width?
Be safe, Gary

so the width of the house is 24 ft and the wall is centered in the house. (maybe a few inches off approx. 3") . here are the pics hopefully i got what you asked for. Didnt see any broken rafters either. the attic is about 40 ft long also if that factors into anything. also none of the supports are put in with any sort of brackets if that matters
