load baring walls?


If load support rafters are used is it necessary to have a centered load baring wall? For the basement, is a steel I-beam enough to do without a centered load baring wall?

Any wall you add to an unfinished basement is a partition wall and carries no load.
Not sure if this answers your question, though.
