Anybody have any experience doing anything like this.
If you are pulling a wall that is supporting a beam that inturn supports the 2nd floor or roof.
You need to support the beam across its length with temporary framing infront of the wall your removing.
Its a load bearing wall you need to support the load the wall your removing is now supporting.
